Yellow Nail Syndrome: Report of Two Cases and a Brief Review of the Current Literature
KeywordsYellow nail, respiratory symptoms, lymphedema
Yellow Nail Syndrome (YNS) is a rare, and probably misdiagnosed, condition. It must be considered in middle-aged patients with unexplained chronic respiratory manifestations, lymphedema and nail abnormalities.
We present two cases of undiagnosed YNS until the current admissions, despite several years of investigation. The authors wish to draw attention to this syndrome, of which diagnosis is clinical and of exclusion.
