Synostoses commonly occur in the midfoot and rearfoot. However, metatarsal synostosis is a less common phenomenon. Several etiologies have been described. The authors present a case of a fourth-fifth intermetatarsal bar, which does not fit into one of the established categories, along with the surgical technique used in its correction.
Aneurysmal bone cysts are a rare entity encountered in podiatric medicine. The frequency of aneurysmal bone cysts distal to the ankle joint is low. The authors present a literature review of the etiologies and possible treatments of an aneurysmal bone cyst. An unusual case of an aneurysmal bone cyst in the cuboid is also presented. Only one other documented case of an aneurysmal bone cyst in the cuboid has been reported since 1967.
