Patient Data

Age: 10 years
Gender: Male

There is a narrowing of the calcaneonavicular joint space with accompanying sclerosis. Appearances are of a coalition.

Case Discussion

The plain films show persistence of the calcaneonavicular joint space, but there is sclerosis suggestive of an underlying coalition. This could be confirmed with cross-sectional imaging; but, in this case the severity of symptoms resulted in primary orthopedic intervention and excision of the coalition.
