We report a rare case of nonunion in the proximal phalanx of the great toe treated by grafting with a precisely processed autologous bone peg. The concept of this surgical method was to fix the nonunion of the proximal phalanx of the great toe using press-fit fixation and a bone peg precisely formed to fit the medullary cavity similar to an intramedullary nail. We believe that our new technique is a viable alternative for the treatment of phalanx fractures or nonunions requiring bone grafts.
