Subungual Hematoma (Bleeding Under Nail)
Subungual Hematoma Overview
A subungual hematoma is a collection of blood in the space between the nail bed and fingernail. Subungual hematomas result from a direct injury to the fingernail. The pressure generated by this collection of blood under the nail causes intense pain.
