A Painful Hexadactyly Volume 33, issue 4, Décembre 2017


Polydactyly is the most frequent malformation of the forefoot. It is as frequent in males and femals. We reported on a case of a woman who suffers from metatarsalgia of the fifth ray. Xrays shows a double deformation of the metatarsal. Conservative surgical procedure by a double osteotomy leads to a complete relief of the pain and a total functional recovery.
