The authors present two cases of resultant hallux hammer toe secondary to the definitive treatment of hallux sesamoidal osteomyelitis. Pseudomonas osteomyelitis developed in both cases following puncture wounds to the first metatarsophalangeal joint complex. The authors also review the literature on pseudomonas osteomyelitis secondary to puncture wounds and the development of hallux hammer toe after removal of the involved sesamoid bones.
