Abstract

The transverse curvature of healthy fingernails were measured in 183 individuals to provide baseline values. Regression analysis showed that nail plates were flatter in men, in older individuals, and in those with wider hands. In addition, in dextral (but not in sinistral) subjects, the fingernails of the dominant hand were flatter than their opposites in the non-dominant hand.
