A WELL-DEVELOPED AND PREVIOUSLY HEALTHY INFANT was brought to our emergency department (ED) by her parents, who said that their child was experiencing significant toe pain. Two reddened, swollen toes (FIGURE) were immediately identifiable on the left foot. The patient’s parents denied any trauma or unusual activity involving the infant.
