Congenital and Acquired Bunions
Foot & ankle specialists
Bunions are a visible bump on the big toe that causes pain, difficulty putting on shoes and aesthetic rejection. Conservative or surgical treatment? Here we tell you what each one consists of.
Bunions are more common among women and, in some cases, are hereditary. There are three different types of Bunions: congenital, acquired and pathological, the latter being understood as the metatarsal-phalangeal deformity associated with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout. The acquired one is the most common.
Congenital bunions: The very rare cases of this disease are actually congenital anomalies of the interphalangeal joint of the first toe.
Acquired bunions: General, extrinsic and intrinsic factors intervene in their appearance.
