Except for the hallux, the human toes classically present three phalanges. There have been numerous papers in regard to incidence of biphalangism in different countries. The most common site of biphalangism is in the fifth toe and its incidence declines in the second to fourth toe. Hence biphalangism of second to forth toe is rare, the bilateral biphalangism of all lateral toes has not been reported yet in the literature. We report a 22 y/o male with biphalangism of all lateral toes (2nd to 5th) in both feet.
