splinter hemorrhage

September 19, 2018  | Encyclopedia

Splinter hemorrhages are small areas of bleeding under fingernails or toenails that take the shape of straight lines and may be caused by damage to the vessels. They appear as narrow red to reddish-brown hemorrhages beneath the nails that run in the direction of nail growth and are called splinter hemorrhage because they have the appearance of a splinter beneath the fingernail. They may be caused by microscopic clots that damage the small capillaries under the nails.
