Macrodactyl more commonly affects the hands than feet. Typically only one foot is affected, with no more than one digit on that foot. Often times macrodactyl coexists with syndactyl, when two toes are fused together. It is a benign condition, but will look displeasing to you and your child.
Congenital causes of the condition include:
- Kippel Trenauary Weber syndrome
- Maffucci syndrome
- macrodystrophia lipomatosa
- lipoatrophic diabetes
- Proteus syndrome
- Tumors, like osteoid osteomas
- Still's disease
- Arteriovenous malformations on a limb
