Avascular necrosis is characterized by a fracture and collapse of the metatarsal head. This causes the rounded end of the bone to flatten out, and leads to a reduction or loss of blood flow to the toe. It usually occurs in the second metatarsal (the toe next to the big toe), but it can occur in the third or even fourth toes as well.
