To recognize the deformities, to estimate the possible complaints of patients, and to draw the path of treatment precisely has an important place in the art of medicine. Managing the deformities in the `foot`, where biomechanical forces play an extremely active role in, is difficult and requires experience. Moreover, when these deformities are thought to be seen in the childhood; it is predicted that it may become more complicated because it has features of developing, growing, and altering of the shape. Because of this complexity, although the management of the toe deformities is mainly performed by Orthopedics and Traumatology specialists, it is suggested that primary care physicians should also be informed on issues such as recognizing, orienting, and bringing about problems accompanying these deformities. In this review, common toe deformities in childhood age group, and treatment approaches for these deformities are discussed briefly.
