Yellow Nail Syndrome

Yellow Nail Syndrome


Yellow Nail Syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by the triad of yellow, thickened nails, respiratory issues, and lymphatic system abnormalities. While the exact cause remains elusive, factors such as chronic respiratory conditions, immune system disorders, and genetic predispositions are believed to contribute to its development.


The hallmark symptom of Yellow Nail Syndrome is the distinct yellow discoloration and thickening of nails. Respiratory manifestations, such as chronic cough and difficulty breathing, often accompany this syndrome. Lymphedema, where fluid accumulates in tissues, can further contribute to swelling and discomfort.
