International Journal of Dermoscopy


Onychoscopy is the examination of nail and its components with the help of a dermatoscope. It is a noninvasive, painless, cost-effective, and reproducible office procedure. The enhanced and in vivo magnified visualization offered by onychoscopy helps us to identify various features not seen on naked eye examination. So onychoscopy serves as an interface between histological and clinical examination.
