Abstract

Os intermetatarseum is a rare accessory bone of the forefoot and usually situated between the base of the first and second metatarsals. Most of the cases are asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. Here, we report a rare form of os intermetatarseum presented with bilateral dorsal foot pain and to the authors' knowledge, it is the first case which includes computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings.
