GustiloRBAndersonJT:Prevention of infection in the treatment of one thousand and twenty-five open fractures of long bones: retrospective and prospective analyses.
J Bone Joint Surg Am58: 453,
Hallux valgus interphalangeus deformity has been previously reported in the literature following trauma and first metatarsophalangeal joint fusion. However, to the best of our knowledge, hallux varus interphalangeus deformity has not been previously reported. We present the case of a 26-year-old skeletally mature woman who sustained an acute, open hallux varus interphalangeus injury following an osteochondral fracture of the medial head of the proximal phalanx.
