We report a nine-year-old boy with a type IIIa tibial hemimelia, according to the new Paley classification. We describe the x-ray findings, the surgical treatment technique, and the prognostic course of the patient. Descriptions of such cases are very infrequent in the literature and type of treatment is still object of debate.
Keywords: Correction of pediatric deformity; Jones classification; Leg reconstruction; Paley classification; Tibial hemimelia; Weber classification.
