Abstract

One hundred consecutive patients with alopecia areata were examined for presence of nail abnormalities. Nail changes were seen in 44/100 (44%) of patients with most frequent occurrence in multifocal variety (30/44=68%). The commonest abnormality observed was superficial pits seen in 28 (64%) patients. Presence and severity of nail changes may indicate a more severe and recalcitrant disease.
