Definition of Furrows

  1. Also known as corrugations, long ridges that run either lengthwise or across the nail; some lengthwise ridges are normal in adult nails, and they increase with age; lengthwise ridges can also be caused by conditions such as psoriasis, poor circulation, and frostbite; ridges that run across the nail can be caused by conditions such as high fever, pregnancy, a zinc deficiency, and measles in childhood.
