Onychocryptosis (ingrowing toe nails) are most commonly the result of a local occurrence, be it through micro-trauma of ill fitting shoes, direct forceful trauma or poor nail care. The nail plate ruptures the nail fold and a pyogranuloma develops. Systemic disease may be an aetiological factor, as in this case where a renal transplant recipient received the immuno-suppressive drug Cyclosporin A.
