Lindsay's nails (half-and-half nails: half white, half red/pink/brown)

Prevalence in general population (GP): rare [~1,5% | 1:1 | weight: 1,00]

Most likely diagnostic options for Linday's nails, where the pink zone may cover 20% up to 60% of the nail length - not be confused with 'Terry's nails', where the pink zone is smaller (ranked by 'weight' for the general population):


• severe chronic renal failure (kidney) [~35% | 1:32 | weight: 0,73]
• azotemia (= nitrogen excess in blood) [~80% | 1:200 | weight: 0,27]
• hemodialysis patients (sev. kidney problems) [~70% | 1:600 | w: 0.08]
• renal transplant patients (sev. kidney failure) [~56% | 1:1800 | w: 0.02]

Linday's nails, a.k.a. half-and-half nails / half white-half pink nails.

Quick summary:
a large majority (~90%) of hands featured with Lindsay's nails involves chronic renal failure or azotemia (or another condition with kidney failure involved).

[In every 100 Lindsay's nails cases in the general population (GP) you can expect to find 73 chronic renal failure cases, 27 azotemia cases, etc.]

NOTICE: in the general population 1 in 32 people have chronic renal failure; initially, kidney disease often has no symptoms and can go undetected until it is very advanced.

NOTICE: Keep in mind that every single hand sign always bares the potential
to have an association with multiple psychology- and/or health related themes;
a solid assessment always requires a consideration of hand sign combinations!
