Syndactyly is a condition in which the digits are abnormally wedded, either congenital or acquired. I'm going to present a case report on how K wires and a mini external fixator were used to desyndactylize webbed great and second toes, as well as methods for anatomic correction, skin coverage, and tension-free closure. A split-thickness skin graft from the posterior thigh of the ipsilateral leg is used with a mini external fixator in this case because the syndactyly is congenital, simple, and complete.

Keywords : Syndactyly; Syndactylism; Desyndactylization; Split thickness skin graft; mini Fixator.
