Surgical syndactylism is reviewed as an alternative method of treatment for heloma molle of the fourth interspace. This is achieved by excision of the apposing skin surfaces between the fourth and fifth toes. By maintaining intimate apposition of the two toes, permanent syndactylism of the interdigital space is achieved, therefore preventing reformation of the heloma molle.
