Podiatry Factoid

The human foot has been called the mirror of health. Foot doctors, or doctors of podiatric medicine (DPMs), are often the first doctors to see signs of such systemic conditions as diabetes, arthritis, and circulatory disease in the foot. Among these signs are dry skin, brittle nails, burning and tingling sensations, feelings of cold, numbness, and discoloration. Always seek professional care when these signs appear.
Maffucci's Syndrome

Maffucci's Syndrome is usually associated with a bony prominence under the toenail.

Some form of injury or trauma to the toe results in the formation of the bony irregularity or prominence.
