Figure 3: Onychoscopy of nail psoriasis shows splinter hemorrhages. Panels (a and c) demonstrate slender, filamentous, and linear with bulbous end vessels (blue arrows) which are bright pink in color suggestive of recent rupture of nail bed capillaries. Panels (b and d) reveal linear, dark red or purple (yellow arrows) vessels indicative of older injury to the capillaries. Uniform red dots are very well appreciated in the hyponychium (panel c)
