Medial dorsal cutaneous nerve
Nerve: Medial dorsal cutaneous nerve
Nerves of the dorsum of the foot. (Medial dorsal cutaneous labeled at upper left.)
Latin nervus cutaneus dorsalis medialis
Gray's subject #213 966
From superficial fibular nerve

The medial dorsal cutaneous nerve (internal dorsal cutaneous branch) passes in front of the ankle-joint, and divides into two dorsal digital branches, one of which supplies the medial side of the great toe, the other, the adjacent side of the second and third toes.

It also supplies the integument of the medial side of the foot and ankle, and communicates with the saphenous nerve, and with the deep peroneal nerve.
