Abstract

A simple technique for partial or complete destruction of the nail matrix with the use of phenol alcohol is outlined. A retrospective analysis of 30 random patients suggests that it has a low morbidity, is easy to perform, and has a high success rate. Therefore, it offers an excellent option to cold steel surgery, especially for the nonsurgically oriented dermatologist.
