Great toenail malalignment is characterised by lateral deviation of the longitudinal axis of the nail plate with respect to the hallux, and is usually post-traumatic, iatrogenic or due to congenital malalignment of the great toenails. We present cases of great toenail malalignment with onset in adolescence or young adulthood without preceding nail surgery or acute trauma. We postulate that this may represent a late-onset presentation of congenital malalignment of the great toenails.
