Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although, osteochondrosis of tarsal and metatarsal bones are frequent in children, involvement of the cuneiform bone is rare. Because of its rarity, the relevant literature is composed of small case series and case reports. Here, we report the case of a 6-year-old boy with bilateral osteochondrosis of the medial cuneiform bone. Activity modification and analgesia were sufficient for the relief of symptoms during follow-up. We discuss the demographic and clinical characteristics, radiographic findings, and treatment of this rare entity with a review of literature.Level of evidence: Therapeutic, Level IV, Case study.
