Shel, I know of two Hutchinson disorders – one is associated with syphilis and the other with premature/accelerated aging. I have no idea about its association with nail disease. I will try and find out in the morning and let you know. Mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za if I don’t get back to you within a couple of days. Good luck.
