Macrodactyly of the foot is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by an enlargement of the soft tissue and osseous elements. It is difficult to treat this disorder when both the functional and cosmetic problems are addressed simultaneously. In the presented case, we describe an adult male patient with macrodactyly of the great toe, who underwent surgical correction consisting of amputation with debulking of soft tissues. To our knowledge, only a few cases regarding adults with macrodactyly of the foot have been reported in the literature. We advocate early surgical treatment of macrodactyly of the foot to enhance the quality of social life.

Key words: Macrodactyly, megalodactyly, foot, toe
