Small toenails
Feb 10, 2007
... My dad has the wierdest small toenails. they are almost not existent but they are just like a small hangnail or something. My small toenails aren't much better. They are small and seem to grow up. Does anyone know what could cause this? ... (2 replies)

... The shape of the toenail (as in the fingernails) is directly related to the shape of the underlying bone.
