Acute Paronychia

The paronychia is an infection of the periungual tissues. Acute paronychia causes redness, warmth and pain along the nail margin. The diagnosis is obtained by the inspection. The sessions are held with staphylococcal effective antibiotics and drainage from any facilities.

The paronychia is an acute disease usually, but chronic cases are possible (chronic paronychia). In acute paronychia the pathogens usually Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus and rare, Pseudomonas or Proteus spp. Organisms enter through a break in the epidermis, which results from a agnail, a trauma to a nail fold, loss of cuticle or chronic irritation (eg. As by water and detergent). Biting or sucking the finger can also contribute to the development of infection. On the toes is often an ingrown nail the trigger (ingrown toenail).

Novel drug treatments, such as with inhibitors of epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR), mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and less common BRAF gene inhibitors can cause paronychia as well as other lesions. The cause is not fully understood. However, most cases seem to be triggered by the drug itself, for example by changes in the retinoic acid metabolism, and not by a secondary infection. In diabetics and in patients with peripheral vascular disease, the entire limb is threatened by the Zehenparonychie. Symptoms and complaints The paronychia is created along the nail edge (lateral and / or proximal nail fold) and manifests itself in the course of hours to days with pain, warmth, redness and swelling. Usually forms at the edge of the nail and sometimes under the nail maker. Infection can spread to the fingertip, which causes inflammation of the nail bed. Rarely the infection penetrates in the depth of the finger, where it leads to infectious tenosynovitis of the flexors.
