There is flexion and varus deformity at the distal interphalangeal joints of the 3rd, 4th and 5th toes bilaterally, consistent with "curled toes".
Curled toes, also known as varus toes, can affect any of the lesser digits of the foot and are often observed bilaterally. The deformity is often noticed at infancy, but may present later in childhood, especially if contractures have developed.
