    Hi. Everyone.

    I am 2nd year Podiatry student

    I am wondering if I ask the questions related to subjects, here in the section of forum.

    If we suspect 'subungual helomata' with a painful big toe, what will be likely differential diagnosis of subungual helomata?

    If subungual exostosis is one of them, how can we differentiate between these conditons?

    Hi Guinue
    Perhaps you should look in Merriman's assessment of the lower limb or Neale's disorders, they both have a lot of info on Dx-ing and DDing exostoses. If you google it too there is useful info also.
    I'm a 1st year pod student and I use/read podarena quite a bit, but I usually only ask a question when I have exhausted all other avenues. There are many wise and knowledgeable users on podA who are available to answer questions, but in the spirit of teaching - they wont hand answers to you on a plate. If the answer is readily available in textbooks and many websites, then you will probably be expected to look there before before asking on Pod Arena. I found much useful info in Merriman's, Neale's, and even google - give it ago!
    Hope that helps

    Subungual exostosis, at least one large enough to cause symptoms, is very easily visualized on a lateral raised hallux radiograph.
