OS SUBTIBIALE: Inconstant Bone Over the Tip of the Medial Malleolus.

LAPIDUS, PAUL W.
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: July 1933
Case Report

Two cases of bilateral extremely rare inconstant bone, os subtibiale, are reported,-one in an adult, the other in a child.

An accessory center of ossification over the tip of the medial malleolus is occasionally observed in children, appearing around six and fusing at about thirteen years of age. This accessory center and the os subtibiale seem to be two different entities which, however, may have some relation to each other.
