WHAT IS A TAILOR'S BUNION?

A Tailor’s bunion, also known as a bunionette, is an outward prominence of the head of the long bone (5th metatarsal) that sits at the base of the little toe. Due to instability in the foot, this long bone eventually swings too far outward, or develops an enlarged prominence on its outer side. This can lead to pain in tighter shoes, and swelling and inflammation along the base of the little toe.
