True leukonychia

Total leukonychia

In this rare condition (Figure 7.1) the nail may be milky, chalky, bluish, ivory or porcelain white in colour. The opacity of the whiteness varies: when it is faintly opaque, it may be possible to see transverse streaks of leukonychia in a nail with total leukonychia.
