Crossover second toe deformities are one of the most common but least under- stood pathologies that foot and ankle surgeons deal with on a routine basis. As an example, if you were to do a Pubmed search using the key words “hallux valgus,” you would find over 3,000 articles. Using the keywords “crossover toe,” you have only 86 articles, and many of them are on horses.
