A systematic examination of the nails in the critically ill patients provides clues to many vascular, nutritional, endocrine and infectious diseases, connective tissue disorders and intrinsic skin diseases. Variations in color and shape, swelling, abnormal blood vessels, bands, indentations and pitting, as well as separation of the nail plate, may be signs of systemic disease.

Key words: nail examination, systemic disease, leukonychia.
