Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 33-year old woman who presented with arteriovenous malformation that infiltrated the extensor hallucis longus tendon, resulting in a checkrein deformity of the right great toe. She reported no recent history of trauma, and her general health was normal. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a relatively slow-growing soft-tissue mass on T1-weighted images. The study showed that surgical resection was attempted to resolve the checkrein deformity of the toe.
