Re: Congenital curly toe

For the record, a bone in the hands or the feet is supposed to be shaped like a rectangle with two knobs at the end. Almost like a rectangle with one heart at each end. And quite like a femur.


If your child has a round OR triangle bone, they are both delta phalanx but a round bone, it will present as worse "crookedness" typically though not always.

couldn't find a picture of foot with delta phalanx but here is a classic presentation in a hand
