Table 5.2 lists some of the nore common lesions in relation to their site in the nail apparatus. Benign and malignant lesions are detailed in Table 5.3. The nail apparatus develops in utero from primi-tive skin and it is therefore not surprising that many of the swellings and tumours that affect the rest of the skin can occur within it. Table 5.4 lists the vast array of such conditions which have been described in and around the nail apparatus; only the distinctive lesions that are peculiar to the nail apparatus and those that have different morphology in this site are described in detail.
