Caption: Bunion. Close-up of bursitis over a bunion on the foot of a 60-year-old woman. A bunion is an inflamed joint at the base of the big toe. The underlying cause is usually a deformity of the toe joint called hallux valgus, in which the base of the toe projects outwards and rubs repeatedly against a tight-fitting shoe. Often, as in this case, a fluid-filled pad, or bursa, develops near the joint in response to friction. In this patient the bursa has become painfully inflamed - a condition called bursitis. Treatment for bunions involves resting the foot and changing footwear. Large bunions and recurrent bursitis sometimes require surgery.
