Onychomadesis is a nail plate abnormality with temporary cessation in the growth of the nail plate due to disturbances in the nail matrix. Any local or systemic condition affecting the nail matrix directly or indirectly can lead to onychomadesis. The causes can vary from idiopathic infections to systemic causes. Although onychomadesis is not a finding unique to any disease, it indicates the presence of a preceding trigger, which affects the nail matrix. Here, we report one such case of onychomadesis following acute hepatitis B infection.
