Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
Ingrown toenail is a relatively frequent condition of the great toe affecting usually young adults. Surgery is most often required but the rate of recurrences is high with the risk of definitive functional and esthetical consequences. Among the numerous surgical procedures described, none is unanimously considered as the most effective. As for all dermatological surgery, the procedure must be not only curative but also esthetically acceptable. The surgeon's skills and experience are determining factors. A review of the most common procedures is presented.
