We described a particular case of onychocryptosis with consequent macrodactylia of first toe probably resulting from negligent periungueal abscess and from attitude in important pronation of the same first toe. Between possibilities of treatment we chose the “onychectomy with curettage and regularization of tissues. This treatment, that obtained at a distance good functional and aesthetic results, will continue by a second debulking treatment.
