Yellow nail syndrome is characterized by the triad of abnormally shaped, slow-growing, yellow nails, lymphedema, and chronic respiratory tract disease. Nail changes may precede the other features by several years. The syndrome is most often seen in middle-aged individuals and has not been documented in children under age 11 years. We cared for an 8-year-old girl with this disorder.
