Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A white, crescent-shaped area is visible where the nail leaves the nail fold and this is the             .

    • A.

      Sulci

    • B.

      Lunula

    Correct Answer
    B. Lunula
    Explanation
    The white, crescent-shaped area visible where the nail leaves the nail fold is called the lunula. The lunula is the visible part of the nail matrix, which is responsible for nail growth. It appears white because it is the thickest part of the nail and blocks the underlying blood vessels. The lunula is commonly found on the thumbnail and the big toe, but may not always be visible on all nails.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Onychia
    B. Onychophosis
    Explanation
    Paronychia is a condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the skin around the nail. It can coexist with other conditions such as onychia and onychophosis. Onychia refers to inflammation and infection of the nail matrix, while onychophosis refers to the presence of a corn or callus in the nail sulcus. Therefore, it is possible for a person to have paronychia along with onychia and onychophosis simultaneously.

    • A.

      Drill a hole in the nail plate and release the blood. Dress the nail with an anti-septic dressing.

    • B.

      Drain the nail bed by removing as much of the nail as is necessary.

    • C.

      Apply a morhulin cream and ensure the patient keeps the toe clean and dry.

    Correct Answer
    A. Drill a hole in the nail plate and release the blood. Dress the nail with an anti-septic dressing.
    Explanation
    To treat subungual hematoma, which is a condition caused by sudden injury, the appropriate course of action would be to drill a hole in the nail plate to release the trapped blood. This helps relieve pressure and reduce pain. After draining the blood, it is important to dress the nail with an antiseptic dressing to prevent infection. This treatment allows for proper healing and prevents further complications.

  • 4. 

    If bleeding is apparent under the nail plate for no apparent reason, i.e. no trauma and there appears to be a pigmented growth, this should not be interfered with as this is potentially a malignant condition and extremely dangerous.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If bleeding is visible under the nail plate without any known cause and there is a pigmented growth, it is best not to interfere with it. This is because it could potentially be a malignant condition, meaning it could be cancerous, and it can be extremely dangerous. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it advises against interfering with such a condition.

    Nails which have a marked curvature have a tendency to                               

    • A.

      Grow quickly

    • B.

      Be healthy

    • C.

      Split longitudinally

    Correct Answer
    C. Split longitudinally
    Explanation
    Nails with a marked curvature are more likely to split longitudinally. This is because the curved shape puts extra stress on the nail, making it more prone to splitting along its length.

  • 6. 

    Generally speaking, the toenails should be cut on a slight curve and never down the sides.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Toenails should be cut straight across and not on a curve. Cutting toenails on a curve can increase the chances of ingrown nails and other foot problems. Cutting straight across helps prevent the nails from digging into the skin and causing discomfort or infection. Trimming the nails down the sides can also lead to ingrown nails as it encourages the nails to grow into the skin. Therefore, the statement that toenails should be cut on a slight curve and never down the sides is incorrect.

  • 7. 

    Koilonychia is?

    • A.

      Transverse ridges across the nails.

    • B.

      Separation of the nail from the nail bed.

    • C.

      Nail becomes spoon-shaped and concave, (indication of anaemia).

    Correct Answer
    C. Nail becomes spoon-shaped and concave, (indication of anaemia).
    Explanation
    Koilonychia refers to a condition in which the nails become spoon-shaped and concave. This is often seen as an indication of anemia. Anemia is a condition characterized by a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood, leading to reduced oxygen-carrying capacity. The spoon-shaped nails in koilonychia occur due to the thinning of the nail plate and the upward curvature of the edges. This condition can be caused by various factors, including iron deficiency, malnutrition, and certain underlying medical conditions.
