We report a rare case of a newborn patient with severe, rigid, bilateral idiopathic clubfeet with midfoot abductus, successfully corrected through á la carte complete circumferential release with peroneus brevis and abductor digiti minimi muscles lengthening. To our knowledge, this deformity patterns has not been described in idiopathic clubfoot. The patient achieved satisfactory functional and cosmetic outcomes at two-year follow-up.
