J Foot Ankle Surg. 2019 Mar;58(2):374-376. doi: 10.1053/j.jfas.2018.08.047.

Abstract

We report a rare case of a female, aged 42 years, with symptomatic bilateral triple tarsal coalition, that is, talocalcaneal, calcaneonavicular, and talonavicular tarsal coalition. The patient was treated conservatively by adjusting her activities. At the 12-month follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic. Bilateral triple tarsal coalition is a rare disorder, especially in nonsyndromic patients. The purpose of this case report was to highlight this rare type of multiple bilateral tarsal coalitions and to discuss the relevant existing literature.

Keywords: adults; ankle; bilateral multiple tarsal coalition; subtalar coalition; symptomatic.
