A yellow lunula (with fluorence) is a classic result of tetracycline therapy (for chronic lyme disease) [source: Indian research]
Yellow lunulae are also a common feature in yellow nail syndrome (in this disease the growth of the nails typically slows down and the lunulae often disappear). Yellow nails can also be caused by the dye in nail polish.
