Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

The association of fibular duplication with metatarsal diplopodia is extremely rare with only a few cases reported in the medical literature.

CASE PRESENTATION:

We present a 4-month-old girl with left tibial agenesis with fibular duplication (mirror foot) and metatarsal diplopodia.

CONCLUSION:

The case report highlights the need for an understanding of this rare congenital anomaly which may be seen only once in the working lifetime of an orthopaedic surgeon.
