Hallux Valgus (Bunion)

Big toe or Hallux (big toe in Latin), deflected to the outside of the foot or Valgus (in Latin).
Very frequent deformation of the big toe with clear female predominance.
It results in an internal protrusion of the first metatarsal head, which is responsible for a painful shoes wearing conflict (bursitis), and then an impact on the other toes.
His treatment, surgical, is detailed in the chapter «Hallux Valgus».
