Management of periungual wart is a great challenge, especially when there is subungual extension.

This difficulty of ascertaining its extent could be overcome with this finger-shaped red light emitting diode device. Red light in the device penetrates the thick palmar skin and dark constitutive skin colour due to its longer wavelength.
