Desyndactylization: a unique case report

, : Desyndactylization: a unique case report. Journal of Foot Surgery 30(4): 340-343

Syndactylism is a congenital or acquired anomaly in which there is persistence of webbing between adjacent digits. It occurs in 1:2000 to 1:2500 live births, three times more commonly in males, and most often between the middle and third fingers. In the foot, syndactyly involves the second and third toes most frequently. Generally, this is thought of as a cosmetic condition when associated with the toes of the foot, as this usually causes little functional loss. The authors present a unique case report of syndactyly of the hallux and second toe in a 66-year-old black female and its surgical repair for painful hammertoe deformity.
