Lesser toe deformities

Claw toe, Hammer toe and Mallet toes are toe deformities that affect the little toes of your feet, that is the 2nd to 5th toes.

  • Hammertoe is a toe that's curled due to a bend in the middle joint of a toe.
  • Mallet toe is similar, but affects the end joint of a toe.
  • Claw toe is similar to Hammertoe but also involves a upward bend (extension) from the joints at the ball of the foot.
