Abstract

Osteochondritis of intermediate cuneiform is an unusual entity in itself but it is even rarer to find it with delayed appearance of navicular ossification centre. We report a case who presented with unilateral deformity of foot. Diagnosis was established with help of ski gram and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of foot. Patient was managed conservatively. Thus osteochondritis can have varied presentation and affects mostly male children. On extensive review of literature we could not come across any report of such case from Indian subcontinent.
