Abstract
Many persons with haemophilia suffer from HIV and receive highly active ant iretroviral therapy. Three patients received indinavir and required surgery due to ingrown toenails. Two patients suffered from a traumatic subungual haematoma. The treatment protocol is described whereby the pressure exerted onto the germinal layer and the nail bed is relieved in order to alleviate pain and nail matrix damage.
