Özet

Common blue naevi usually occur on the skin however subungual blue naevi are extremely rare pigmented lesions of the nail. They need to be differentiated from pigmentations, chromogenic nail diseases, infections and most importantly melanoma. Herein, a 39-year-old female patient with subungual blue naevus who presented together with elkonyxis is presented with a brief review of cases from the literature.
