Abstract

The authors describe a case of yellow nail syndrome in a 44-year-old male patient, with a clinical picture characterized by hand and foot onychodystrophy, lymphedema in the legs and recurrent pleural and pericardial effusions. They indicate subxiphoid pericardiostomy and pleural drainage as the rational surgical procedure for the treatment of this particular associated pathology.
