Tailor’s Bunion (Bunionette)

Tailor’s bunions involve a bump at the foot at the base of the little toe.   The bump is called the bunion and there may be an increase in the angle between the bones behind the fourth and fifth toes, called the metatarsals. The cause is usually genetic but may also have a biomechanical component. Treatment involves wearing wider shoes, biomechanical treatment such as orthotics, and surgical correction.
