State the types of common toes deformities a, Computer Engineering

Common toes deformities are:

1. Hallux valgus: Deviation of great toe towards the second toe resulting in prominence of first metatarsal head.  Later on there is formation of a bursa on the prominence. This results in formation of a bunion which may undergo secondary infection.

2. Hallux rigidus: This is an unbending great toe which is vulnerable to ulceration due to pressure and friction.

3. Claw toes: These toes are bent ventrally. Their tips are prone to develop ulcer due to abnormal pressure and friction.

4. Hammer toes: These are cock-up toes which are bent upwards & trend to develop ulcer due to friction with upper of the shoes.
