Racquet nail

In Racquet nails (also known as "Brachyonychia,"[1] "Nail en raquette",[2] and "Racquet thumb",[1]) the end of the thumb is widened and flattened, the nail plate is flattened as well, and the distal phalanx is abnormally short.[2] Racquet nails occur on one or both thumbs and are apparently inherited as an autosomal-dominant trait.[2] In racquet nails, the width of the nail bed and nail plate is greater than their length.[3]
