Melanonychia is defined as brown or black pigmentation on a nail caused by melanin and other exogenous pigments. While the most common causes are benign nevi, trauma, onychomycosis, or medications, melanonychia may be a result of a subungual melanoma. When it is the result of a benign condition, patients may desire treatment for aesthetic reasons.
