Claw (or hammer) toe and corns
Claw or hammer toe, corns, calluses… Toe deformities and their complications are many and frequent.
These deformities may be benign, but they are far from being negligible. For example, half of the amputations that have to be performed for diabetic patients are due to a toe lesion that was badly treated or not at all. Any patient with neurological or vascular history needs careful examination of the feet as part of the general annual examination.
