Nine-toed foot. Photograph and X-ray of a child's foot showing polydactyly, a deformity in which more than the usual number of digits are present. The condition is genetic in origin, and in most cases causes no harm. The extra digits are often underdeveloped (those at lower left in this case), and if removed surgically soon after birth cause no long term complications.
