brachymetatarsiaBrachymetatarsia is a congenital condition where one of the metatarsal bones in the foot is abnormally short, leading to a shorter than average toe. This rare condition can affect one or both feet and typically presents with symptoms like pain, discomfort, and cosmetic concerns.

Treatment options vary depending on the severity and individual needs, ranging from non-surgical methods like orthotic devices or shoe modifications to surgical procedures such as bone lengthening or bone grafting.

Early diagnosis and intervention are important for managing symptoms and preventing complications, allowing individuals with brachymetatarsia to maintain mobility and improve quality of life.
