Özet

Macrodactyly is a rare congenital anomaly of the extremities. Some treatments such as debulking, epiphysiodesis, stripping or resection of the digital nerve, shortening of the fingers, amputation, and angulation osteotomy have been tried. We describe a patient with a giant digit in the hand, and present middle phalangectomy as a suitable treatment.
