What causes this. thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

The most common cause of a black toe nail is a rupture of a blood vessel under the toe nail often due to injury or running. Fungal infections can also cause dark coloration of the toe nail, In unusual cases other diseases (such as a melanoma) can be present so an evaluation by a clinician/podiatrist is advised in persistent or unusual cases.
