Last revised by Mostafa El-Feky on 28 May 2022

Metatarsus adductus is a type of foot deformity where there is medial deviation of the first metatarsal +/- medial displacement of the metatarsals on the cuneiform.

It is considered the most common congenital foot abnormality.

It can be congenital or acquired.

Best assessed on a weight-bearing dorsoplantar foot radiograph. The intermetatarsal angle is increased.
