Study of toe deformities in diabetic foot through Amit Jain’s extended ‘SCC’ classification

Amit Kumar C Jain, Apoorva HC


A study was conducted to analyze the visible named toe deformities that occur in foot of patients with diabetes through the new Amit Jain’s extended ‘SCC’ classification. A total of 27 patients were included who fulfilled the criteria. Majority of the patients (59.3%) were males. 11.1% of patients had diabetes of more than 24 years duration. Type 1 toe deformities were the most common deformities seen in 85.2% of the cases. Hammer toe was the commonest pathological type followed by claw toes. Around 14.8% had underlying callus/ulcers (complex deformity). This new classification is simple and easy to use in clinical practice.

Key words: Diabetes, foot, toes, ulcer, Amit Jain, deformity
