Corns and calluses resulting from mechanical hyperkeratosis.
The formation of corns and calluses can be caused by mechanical stresses from faulty footgear (the wearing of poorly fitting shoes), abnormal foot mechanics (deformity of the foot exerting abnormal

Fortnightly Review: Callosities, corns, and calluses
Corns and calluses arise from hyperkeratosis, a normal physiological response to chronic excessive pressure or friction on the skin and can be managed conservatively by use of sensible footwear and orthoses to redistribute mechanical forces.
