Case contributed by Dr Hani Salam


Trauma following fall. Tender base of 5th metatarsal.

Modality: X-ray

There is no fracture, but there is an additional toe that projects from the distal 5th metatarsal and contains a proximal and distal phalanx. Presumably, this was noted clinically!

Case Discussion

This child has an extra digit on their foot (polydactyly).
