Congenital longitudinal deficiency of the fibula (CLDF) is the most common congenital defect involving the long bones. There have been many different classifications developed for fibula deficiency. Achterman and Kalamchi's classification is most commonly used and will be described. Our case was complied with type II. Other anomalies includes cardiac anomalies, thrombocytopenia absent-radius (TAR) syndrome, thoracoabdominal schisis, spina bifida and renal anomalies, but most associated anomalies are skeletal. We here presented firstly in literature an infant with congenital fibula deficiency accompanying with deafness.
