Bone growth ( also known as a “parrot’s beak”) around the edges of an osteoarthritic joint. This is a consequence of osteoarthritis.
Osteophytes are sometimes palpable, even annoying, at the level of the forefoot, because the joints are superficial, and therefore quickly compressed.
For example, in the case of osteoarthritis of the big toe, there is a dorsal osteophyte that can be painful during shoes wearing.
