The authors discuss a commonly encountered, but poorly documented, condition of the lesser digits. Unlike the clawtoe deformity, which normally occurs in the cavus-foot type, the combined hammer toe-mallet toe (double corn) deformity is perhaps most frequently associated with the pronated foot type undergoing flexor stabilization. This article reviews 20 patients undergoing 62 double resectional arthroplasty procedures for treatment of the deformity.
