There have been recent reports of nail loss occurring mostly in children within 4 weeks of their having hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD); however, the link between the disease and nail loss has not been confirmed. In the reports reviewed, the nail loss has been temporary and nail growth resolved without medical treatment.
