Some things work for everybody and some dont so you have to kinda find your own.

I took the word and found another word in it to make me remember, like

Onychocryptosis (ingrown) so i used (cry)ptosis makes nails cry from ingrown
Onychorrhexes, is a hex to have split brittle nails

onychoptosis is a condition in which part or all the nail sheds periodically and falls off. So to remember I thought of "only chop toes sometimes"

onychomadesis is shedding of the nail plate. So I used "Mad nails Leave"

Onychia is an inflammation of the entire nail. So I used " Chia" as in Chia pet it gets bigger as it grows

Im sure theres an easyier way to remember them but these worked for me and my whole state board exam was on these conditions lucky me glad I studied.

I know the main thing that stuck was anything ending in coccus(sp) was very bad.

onycholysis - loosing of the nail bed - it was the only one I could remember without some kind of trick.

onychophyma - swelling... ends in "ma" - ma's swell when pregnant.

That's all I can remember off the top of my aging head!

Onycho(crypt)osis (ingrown) crypts are sometimes under(in)ground
Onycho(made)sis is shedding of the nail plate, I made a shed

Okay - I just took my boards in August and here's some of the ones we came up with in class (some of these aren't necessarily disorders, and keep in mind that some of them are kind of out of the ordinary):

Onychophagy - the "old hag" with the bitten nails

Onychomadesis - shedding of the nail plate - it kind of sounded like "funky cold madina", which will make you shed your clothes

Pyogenic granuloma - lump of red tissue grows up from the nail bed to the nail plate - "Pyo" sounded like "pyro", like pyrotechnics (fireworks), which go up and are red

Onychogryphosis - "ram's horn" - there's a mythical creature called a "gryphon" (has the head/wings of an eagle and the body of a lion), so I remembered the animal connection

Onychorrhexis - split or brittle nails have a series of lengthwise ridges - if a Tyrannosaurus Rex scratched your nails with his claws he'd leave the ridges

Furrows vs. corrugations - if you were planting corn, you'd look at the rows from top to bottom; if you looked at a cross-section of cardboard (which is corrugated), you'd see hills and valleys going from right to left

Paronychia - red, inflamed tissue around the nail - I'd be paranoid to get an infection if I went to a "McNails" salon (also known as felon or run-around - a felon would give you the run-around before he was caught "red-handed"

This next one needs a warning for possible inappropriateness, but take it anatomically, not as though I've got my mind in the gutter (which I probably do...) : )

pterygium - excess growth of skin adhering to the nail plate...
Pter = Peter = penis...if the "peter" isn't circumcised it will have extra skin

So, that's what I remember...hope it helps! Smile

Ok, first of all I have to say how surprised I am that so many of you did the same thing as me to remember the disorders. When I was in school everyone laughed at me when I told them how I was remembering things.

Onychophagy--this one can be pronounced two different ways. I chose the one that sounds like ony-COF-ogy...bitten nails, you will cough when you bite your nails and swallow.

Pterygium--reminded me of a pterydactyl and the skin growing like that looks like a pterydactyl wing.

Leukonychia--reminds me of leukemia...and with leukemia you will have lots of white cells.

Onychocryptosis--this was similar to what someone else said...crypt...in the ground/in the skin

Onychatrophia--'atrophy' means to waste away as in the muscles so this one was easy.

Onychogryposis--excessive growth or thickening...the term sounds like 'grow' to me

Melanonychia--melonin...color

Hope those help a bit!

no one has mentioned

Onychauxis is evidenced by over-thickening of the nail plate and may be the result of internal disorders -- seek medical advice.

hmm i wonder who told me that one? (you know who you are!)
