Greetings. Yes, whitish discoloration of the nails is leukonychia as you have rightly pointed out. However, I wouldn't call it a disease condition in itself. Rather it is a symptom of another systemic disease or nutritional deficit or hormonal imbalance. So see a qualified dermatologist near you. Warm regards
