Introduction. Onychopapilloma is a very rare benign tumour of the nail matrix and nail bed. Clinically onychopapilloma presents as longitudinal erytronychia, exceptionally as leukonychia or melanonychia. After nail avulsion, circumscribed, keratinized cone-shaped structure is seen. In histopathology distal subungual hyperkeratosis and nail matrix metaplasia and papillomatosis are observed. Etiopathogenesis of onychopapilloma is unknown. Treatment is only surgically.
