Yellow Nail Syndrome

Yellow nail syndrome is an uncommon disorder of unknown aetiology, characterized by the triad of yellow nails, lymphoedema and respiratory tract involvement. Vitamin E at dosages ranging from 600 to 1200 IU daily can induce a complete clearing of the nail changes. Although the mechanism of action of vitamin E in yellow nail syndrome is still unknown, antioxidant properties of alpha-tocopherol may account for its efficacy. A 5% solution of vitamin E in dimethyl sulphoxide produced marked clinical improvement in a double-blind controlled study. The efficacy of topical vitamin E, however, still needs confirmation. Oral itraconazole, 400 mg daily one week a month for several months, or oral flucouazole, may be beneficial in some cases.
