Onychomatricoma is a cutaneous condition characterized by a distinctive tumor of the nail matrix.[1]:667

This nail disease can mimic many nail problems and should be examined and biopsied by a dermatologist. [2] In particular, a main concern is the malignant and destructive potential that may exist. [3]
