Toes, Overlapping


Toes, Overlapping

Objective: Describes a foot digit resting on the dorsal surface of an adjacent digit when the foot is at rest


This descriptor is ordered depending on which toes are involved. The overriding toe is labeled, as specified in the introduction (item 3): for example, T3,4. The ordering of the numbers specifies which toe is dorsal, that is, with dorsum of the foot facing upward the toe on top is/are recorded first separated by a comma from the digit that is/are overlapped. Toes that are laterally deviated, but do not rest on top of adjacent toes should be coded as Clinodactyly.
