It's a rare ossicle with an estimated prevalence of 1-2% 1
It's a triangular-shaped bone appearing to be an isolated proximal corner of the medial cuneiform.
It is thought to belong rather to the medial than to the intermediate cuneiform 2.
Some authors claim that with its rare occurrence and small dimensions, this bone is not expected to be of any clinical significance 2.
