Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Discoloured nail. Toenail with melanonychia, a nail discolouration caused by melanin, a pigment normally found in skin, hair and eyes. It usually results from trauma, systemic disease, infection or medication. There are two types of melanonychia: transverse (across) or longitudinal (lengthwise, seen here). Longitudinal melanonychia may be a sign of subungual melanoma, a type of skin cancer that develops beneath the nail.
