Differential Diagnosis

History: Periungual fibromas usually seen in the context of tuberous sclerosis. They arise from the nail folds and usually appear in late childhood. However, sporadic cases of fibromas may occur in persons without tuberous sclerosis as in the presented case of a young adult lady with one year history of a filiform growth originated in the proximal nail plate and extended to the nail plate surface resulted in a longitudinal furrow or groove.
