Macrodactyly of the foot is a rare disorder characterized by enlargement of the soft tissue and osseous elements of the foot that impedes the development of normal function and gait. Despite the morbidity associated with this condition, many surgeons are reluctant to perform surgical reduction. In the present report, we describe 3 pediatric patients with pedal macrodactyly, who underwent surgical correction consisting of amputation of the most enlarged ray, reduction of the adjacent rays, and ray transposition, combined with debulking of soft tissues. All 3 patients subsequently developed a normal gait and were able to wear normal, or minimally adjusted, shoes. We advocate early surgical treatment of macrodactyly of the foot to enhance the development of normal function and gait.
