I have been unsuccessful in researching on my own, or obtaining a diagosis for my daughters condition.

Her toes (all 10) seem to grow fine until they reach the point where the "white" part of the nail should start, and then they grow upwards.

This has been since birth. I have requested bloodwork to see if she is anemic, and she is not. We have seen one foot doctor who told me there is nothing wrong with her nails. And we are scheduled for a second opinion next week.

She is 13 and now concious of how her feet look. She does have the common "barney rebel feet" as do I (her mom). No one in the family has this issue with their nails.

If anyone knows what could be causing the tips of her nails to grow upwards, i would appreciate the comments.
