Abstract: Yellow nail syndrome is an acquired condition of unknown etiology, rarely seen in children, characterized by a triad of thickened yellow nails, primary lymphedema, and respiratory manifestations. We report an 8-year-old girl with this syndrome who showed improvement with Fluconazole, 200 mg once weekly and vitamin E, 1000 IU once daily.
