Mees' lines

                   
Mees' lines
Classification and external resources
ICD-9 985.1

Mees' lines or Aldrich-Mees' lines, also called leukonychia striata, are lines of discoloration across the nails of the fingers and toes.

Contents

  Causes

Mees' lines appear after an episode of poisoning with arsenic,[1] thallium or other heavy metals, and can also appear if the subject is suffering from renal failure.[2] They have been observed in chemotherapy patients.[3]

  Presentation

They are typically white bands traversing the width of the nail. As the nail grows they move towards the end, and finally disappear when trimmed.

  Eponym and history

Although the phenomenon is named after Dutch physician R.A. Mees, who described the abnormality in 1919,[4] earlier descriptions of the same abnormality were made by Englishman E.S. Reynolds in 1901[5] and by American C.J. Aldrich in 1904.[6]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
