Yellow nails following hemodialysis in chronic renal failure: is it yellow nail syndrome or a variant?
Dermatol Online J. 2008 Nov 15; 14(11):19.DO

Abstract

Yellow nail syndrome (YNS) is triad of yellow nails, lymphedema, and respiratory tract involvement. The exact pathogenesis of nail changes in YNS is unknown. We present a case of yellow nails and localized lymphedema secondary to artificial AV fistula in a 55-year-old chronic renal failure patient on hemodialysis for 5 years. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of yellow nail syndrome reported in association with artificial AV fistula.
