Abstract

Turf toe is a spectrum of injury involving the first metatarsophalangeal joint originally described in football players on artificial surfaces. A detailed description of the complex anatomy and pathology involved in the turf toe injury is presented. We highlight potential pitfalls of image interpretation and emphasize what the referring physician needs to know.
