Milk spots on nails. Close-up of the fingernails of a patient with milk spots (leukonychia). Leukonychia is the term for a white discolouration appearing on nails. It is a harmless condition with the most common cause being injury to the base (matrix) of the nail, where the nail is formed, while the nail is growing. It can however, be a medical sign of hypoalbuminaemia of chronic liver disease.
