Osteomyelitis of the distal tibia with involvement of the distal physis can lead to various deformities around the ankle and foot. Calcaneus deformity of the foot is usually secondary to paralytic disorders. A 14-year-old boy presented with calcaneus deformity as a result of osteomyelitis of the distal tibia. Involvement of the distal tibial epiphysis as a result of osteomyelitis of the distal tibia can lead to calcaneus deformity. This deformity has not been reported in the literature. Osteomyelitis of the distal tibia should also be included as a differential diagnosis of calcaneus deformity.
