Abstract:

Subungual myxomas are rare, benign neoplasms that cause clubbing of involved digits. Common treatment approach for these lesions is the marginal resection, being usually curative. This report presents a new surgical approach for the reconstruction of the nail bed and pulp defect with a composite dermofat graft during the surgical treatment of a large subungual myxoma of the thumb. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the use of a dermofat graft for the reconstruction of the nail bed and pulp defect.
