Abstract

Macrodactyly is one of the most difficult congenital anomalies to treat. Treatment of macrodactyly requires surgical intervention because it gives rise to esthetic, social, and functional disability including difficulty in wearing shoes. A myriad of surgical techniques has been introduced to reduce the size of macrodactyly. However, treatment of toe macrodactyly has not been spotlighted due to less significant functional and social issues compared with finger macrodactyly. We treated two patients with toe macrodactyly by single stage reduction operation.
