Multiple Beau's Lines. Multiple Beau's lines in one nail are a sign of repetitive local injury to the matrix, while multiple nails with multiple lines probably indicate something systemic, such as several cycles of chemotherapy. Koilonychia is associated with iron deficiency and protein deficiency, especially deficiency of sulfur-containing amino acids. Beau's lines are transverse depressions in the nail plate caused by temporary cessation of nail growth. Researchers have proposed severe zinc deficiency as a cause of Beau's lines.
