Age is a limiting factor for microsurgery. We report the case of a 67-year-old patient with a malignant tumor on the right thumb, treated by amputation and immediate reconstruction by partial transfer of the hallux, with an excellent result, but venous swelling at the fourth day that required a controlled bleeding for 3days. In the light of this observation, we think that there is no age limit for reconstruction of a thumb by toe transfer, either cosmetically or functionally.
