Case report in latest Medical Journal of Australia
An elderly man attending a dermatology outpatient clinic for an unrelated skin complaint proudly insisted on demonstrating his simple do-it-yourself (DIY) solution to a deformity of his great toenails (pincer nail) that he had endured for many years
Our patient found that, by inserting a stainless steel screw through the free edge of each of his overgrown and overcurved great toenails and into a small broad nut, he was able to satisfactorily correct his deformity by making a series of tightening adjustments over a period of months
Full report and pictures...
