Subungual Keratoacanthoma. Can be quite destructive.

I have just arrived from Warwick where I had a wonderful time and met a great pathologist but even more important and exceptional human being. Thank you Richard!

Yes all agree on subungual KA. These lesions require complete excision as they don't appear to regress spontaneously.  Also note these lesions can be a late marker of incontentia pigmenti.
