20 nail dystrophy occurs in childhood because of genetic predisposition.it may also br associated with other skin conditions like alopecia areata,lichen planus ot psoriasis.hence thorough evaluation is needed for treatment which includes corticosteroid injections to puva.moreover there is no specific treatment for this for permanent cure.
