A passive constriction phenomenon has been proposed to explain the development of congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia. We report a case of congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia in a child with congenital constriction band syndrome, successfully treated with soft tissue release (cutaneous and deep) only, restoring normal periosteal blood supply and enabling gradual correction of the angular osseous deformity and reformation of the intramedullary canal.
