Pernio is an inflammatory condition of the skin associated with cold exposure. The dermatologic manifestations may vary, and this entity is frequently misdiagnosed. Its association with systemic disease underscores the importance of accurate diagnosis. The authors describe a case report in which a patient who, after initially presenting with a complaint of pain and an ingrown toenail, was eventually diagnosed with pernio as well.
