Hallux saltans – seltene Diagnose, oft übersehen

Schindler, Melanie ; Reinhard, Jan ; Grifka, Joachim ; Leiss, Franziska ; Schwarz, Timo


Hallux saltans is similar to digitus saltans and produces a spontaneous "snapping" of the big toe. This results in a constriction of the flexor hallucis longus tendon within the osteofibrous retromalleolar canal. The diagnosis was first described in 1940, and only a few case reports exist. We present the diagnosis and the treatment of a patient and give a review of the literature.
