ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "subungual hematoma" is presented. It refers to a collection of blood under the nail as a result of trauma. It may be treated by heating the end of a paper clip and then placing its point against the nail. This permits a small hole to be melted painlessly in the nail and allows the trapped blood to escape.
