IDIPOPATHIC ONYCHODYSTROPHY IMPROVES WITH INTRADERMAL DEXPANTHENOL INJECTION: AN EXTRAORDINARY USE

Ahmet Konus, Habibullah Aktas

Abstract


Idiopathic onychodystrophy is one of the most challenging conditions for dermatologists to treat. Topical steroids, laser, total nail ablation and nail avulsion had been tried, but no optimal therapy has been decided yet. Herein we present the case of a middle-aged male patient with idiopathic onychodystrophy on his thumb, who improved with six intradermal dexpanthenol injections on weekly basis. This is an extraordinary successful use of dexpanthenol, which is a common medication all over the world.

Key words: Dexpanthenol, onychodystrophy, injection.
