Beau's line: occurring on three fingernails. This transverse groove on each fingernail is a result of a systemic illness which has interfered with nail growth. This particular patient developed Beau's lines after an episode of acute diverticulitis: a serious inflammation of the intestine in which fever, vomiting, and intestinal haemorrhage may have occurred.
