Accessory ossicles of the lower limb
Citation, DOI & article data
There are numerous named and unnamed accessory ossicles of the lower limb. These include:
- ossicles of the hip
- ossicles of the knee
- ossicles of the foot
Although accessory ossicles are often reported as 'normal anatomic variants' (or similar) it is important to recognize that they are not always just an incidental pick-up but may be the source of the patient's symptoms.
