It first appeared on the thumbnail and then appeared on all other fingernails. It is not painful on palpation; no Erythema was observed, and it is not pruritic. He denies any trauma. His past medical history was unremarkable. Physical examination revealed hyperkeratotic nails with a whitish-yellowish appearance.

The rest of the examination was normal, and the mycological examination result also returned negative.
