Hallux Valgus With a Bunion

A hallux valgus is when the base of the big toe abnormally points outward away from the foot and the tip of the big toe tilts in toward the second toe. A bunion is the enlargement at the base of the big toe caused by the hallux valgus deformity. A bursa (a fluid-filled sac) may develop over the joint and may become painful.
