Intermediate phalanges of foot

Location/Articulation

The intermediate phalanges of the foot lie between the proximal and distal phalanges, similar to the intermediate phalanges of the hand. They are remarkably small and short, although broader than the proximal phalanges. They articulate with the proximal and distal phalanges.
