Because his liver was hypo-functional and there was contraindications for griseofulvin and since Artemisia had fungi static properties prepared by Baridje Essence Corporation, therefore local treatment with drop extract of this plant was begun three times/day for a period of 15 weeks. After 14 weeks, the nail restored to normal and no complication was observed.
