We report a case of a middle-aged male patient presenting with complaints of infertility. On examination and history-taking, familial koilonychia was reported without any association with ectodermal, systemic, or orthopedic defects. His iron profile was within normal limits. Hemoglobin was in normal limit. KOH smear taken from the nail showed no fungal growth. Family history of three generations revealed males suffering with familial koilonychias with infertility. Patients admitted with azoospermia should be asked about family history of koilonychia and pedigree analysis should be done.
