Re: what does it mean when your toenail turns black?

If you exeprienced trauma to the nail then it could be a Hematoma (bruise) where the space under the nail plate has filled with blood from the underlying tissue. If not, and the discoloration began as a green to brown to black discoloration, then it could be a Pseudomonas bacterial infection. Either way, you may want to see a Podiatrist.
