Anna Tantillo showed off her unusual appendage on TV show My Feet Are Killing Me, leading to one medic admitting he had never seen a patient with "this long of a big toe"

She told foot and ankle surgeon Dr Brad Schaeffer "it hurts really bad" and the show was her "last option" to get it fixed.

Dr Schaeffer said Anna's extended digit could cause her serious issues in future. When you have a foot where your toe is, like, double the size that jamming in a shoe, every step you take - that's going to cause arthritis, that's going to create jamming of the joints, and it's going to cause pain every step," he said.

Footage shows Dr Schaeffer assessing the toe, before admitting: "That is definitely something. Her toe kind of pops right out at you..."

"I've personally never seen a patient that has this long of a big toe."It's extremely rare."

Dr. Schaeffer is seen weighing up his options to ease Anna's pain - and has to "determine which bone possibly has to be either removed or fused. That's really the job I have in front of me right now".
