Morning doctor. I want to ask, Since I was a child I didn’t have any lunulas at all on my toes or my hands and at the age of 8 I used to have glandular spots in the neck under my ears. Now I am 20 years old but my fingers are gone. Is that dangerous?

1 Answer:

Hello Eky,


Thank you for the question.

Lunula is the medical term for a whitish crescent at the base of the nail. In the lunula there is an important nail matrix whose role is in regulating nail growth. Does not seem lunula can indeed occur in several diseases, such as anemia, heart problems, malnutrition, or some type of connective tissue disorder. Improper nail care, infections, and injuries around the nails can also cause the lunula to become damaged and faintly visible. However, it does not seem that lunula alone can then be used as a benchmark in assessing a person's health status. Not a few healthy people who since birth have no lunulas at all.


Your condition needs to be reconfirmed, is it accompanied by other complaints? Like pale, tightness, damaged nails, itching, and so on? If there are no other complaints that accompany, the absence of a lunula on your finger nails may not be a condition to worry about. However, if you feel very disturbed by this, you can consult further with your doctor or dermatologist for further evaluation.


Hope this helps ...
