Won't forget the picture, will you?

Mr. O. is sure to find some nail particles around his living room for some time to come.

The living room was the room he choose to have his toenails clipped for the first time in a couple of years yesterday.

I did my best to keep the clippings from flying away but every once in a while I would hear a piece landing a second or so at a distant site after the "snap" of the clippers.

He had onychogryphosis, also known as Ram's horn nails.

It's a tough word to remember.

It's easier to remember of picture (this was not my patient but was very similar):
