Subungal exotosis is a bony projection, or bone spur, that forms underneath the big toenail. It usually occurs on the big toe as a result of injury or trauma such as crushing the toe.

Surgical removal of the projection is usually recommended and necessary. Enchondromas also develop in the bone underneath the toenail; these are small, benign growths composed of cartilage.
