Background: The great toe helps in maintaining body balance during standing, walking, running, dancing, and so on.Case Description and Methods: A 22 year-old female patient reported to the department, one month after losing her left hallux in a road accident. Anatomical reconstruction was performed with distraction osteogenesis. The prosthesis was constructed using a wax pattern of the normal hallux to create a silicone prosthesis. The residual limb mold was altered to increase prosthesis retention.Findings and Outcomes: The procedure was economical, conserved materials, and produced lifelike anatomy without requiring artistic expertise.Conclusion: Distraction osteogenesis helped in improving function and retention of the prosthesis. Satisfactory esthetic and functional results were observed at the one-year follow-up.
