Abstract

Anatomic anomalies of the cuneiform bones are a relatively rare finding in the lower extremity. Congenital abnormalities of the middle and lateral cuneiform specifically are not often documented in literature. We present a case of a patient with an additional osseous structure distal to the intermediate cuneiform which articulates with a bifid base of the first metatarsal. We hypothesize this to be a supernumerary intermediate cuneiform.
