Tarsal coalitions typically occur at the talocalcaneal or calcaneonavicular joints. Common findings are pain, limited range of motion, and a pes planus deformity. The focus of this case report includes the presentation, imaging, treatment, and outcomes for a 21-year-old woman diagnosed with a rare lateral cuneocuboid coalition with chronic pain. Clinical and radiographic examinations, typically used to diagnose the common coalition, were unremarkable. Magnetic resonance imaging was diagnostic of the lateral cuneocuboid coalition, which was successfully treated with surgical resection. At 6-year follow-up, she reports resolution of symptoms and has returned to her normal presurgical activity level pain-free. This case is only the third lateral cuneocuboid coalition reported in the literature. The rarity of this coalition and its nonsuspicious clinical presentation make it worthy of acknowledgment.
