Hallux, Broad


Hallux, Broad

Subjective: Visible increase in width of the hallux without an increase in the dorso-ventral dimension


Note that girth may be increased in a broad hallux, but this must be distinguished from Macrodactyly because there the length is also increased. This assessment may be difficult when the hallux is short. Note the separate definition for Broad toes. When a great toes and one or more other toes are affected, it may be more economical to specify Broad toes, T1-5 instead of separately specifying Broad hallux and Broad toes T2-5.
