The presentation of benign and malignant subungual tumors often follows a final common pathway of nonspecific nail deformity; as such, delays in diagnosis are common.

To that end, we present a diagnostic algorithm encompassing the most common benign and malignant subungual tumors, along with a summary of the presentation, imaging, and treatment of these lesions.
