Résumé : Proximal nail fold inflammation can be caused by many diseases and has not previously been recognized as a result of posterior embedding of the nail. We describe a new pattern of ingrowth that we have termed retronychia ("retro"--Latin for backwards; "onychia"--Greek for nail). The term describes a combination of proximal nail plate ingrowth into the proximal nail fold which is associated with multiple generations of nail plate misaligned beneath the proximal nail.
