- NAIL ANATOMY BASICS -

The nail is a unique structure whose component parts are collectively called the 'nail unit'. The 'nail unit' consists of [distal to proximal]:
1 - the free edge of the nail, 2 - the hyponchium, 3 - the onychodermal band, 4 - the nail bed, 5 - the lateral nail fold,
6 - the lunala, 7 - the cuticle, 8 - the nail matrix, and 9 - the proximal nail fold.



The Nail Encyclopedia

Nail disorders can occure on each single aspect of the nail unit. And one should take notice that far most people have at least
one or more (harmless) fingernail disorders - on one or more fingers. However far most of the finger nails disorders mentioned
above are usually not observed in the hands (nor the feet) of healthy people.
