Abstract

Lower extremity surgical procedures in patients with Werner’s syndrome are uncommon, and for this reason they are rarely reported in the literature. In this report, we present the case of a 39-year-old man with a history of Werner’s syndrome, and a malunited right hallux varus and first ray insufficiency after previous bunionectomy performed 4 years earlier. Further reconstructive surgery involved forefoot osteotomy and arthrodesis with internal fixation, and the patient ultimately healed the soft tissues and bones, despite delayed wound healing.
