Nail abnormalities are window to systemic diseases. Although they are not specific to a disease, they can be of great help in the diagnosis of a disease. Mees’ lines are white transverse bands present in nail that are commonly seen in arsenic poisoning. Here we report a case of Mees’ line secondary to paraquat. Paraquat is a herbicide commonly used in agriculture.
