Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the tarsal navicular in an adult: mueller-weiss syndrome.
Summary of "Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the tarsal navicular in an adult: mueller-weiss syndrome."
Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the navicular in the adult is known as Mueller- Weiss syndrome, which is a rare disease characterized by a collapse of the lateral portion of the tarsal navicular combined with a medial protrusion of the talar head and peri-navicular osteoarthritis. In this article, we describe a case of spontaneous osteonecrosis of tarsal navicular in a 43-year-old male. Chronic midfoot pain over the dorsomedial aspect of the right foot was resolved after complete removal of the necrotic bone from the tarsal navicular, followed by an autologous bone grafting of the resultant defect.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The TARSAL BONES; METATARSAL BONES; and PHALANGES OF TOES. The tarsal bones consists of seven bones: CALCANEUS; TALUS; cuboid; navicular; internal; middle; and external cuneiform bones. The five metatarsal bones are numbered one through five, running medial to lateral. There are 14 phalanges in each foot, the great toe has two while the other toes have three each.
The seven bones which form the tarsus - namely, CALCANEUS; TALUS; cuboid, navicular, and the internal, middle, and external cuneiforms.
A condition characterized by mucosal tears at the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION, sometimes with HEMATEMESIS. Typically it is caused by forceful bouts of retching or VOMITING.
Any of a group of bone disorders involving one or more ossification centers (EPIPHYSES). It is characterized by degeneration or NECROSIS followed by revascularization and reossification. Osteochondrosis often occurs in children causing varying degrees of discomfort or pain. There are many eponymic types for specific affected areas, such as tarsal navicular (Kohler disease) and tibial tuberosity (Osgood-Schlatter disease).
The articulations between the various TARSAL BONES. This does not include the ANKLE JOINT which consists of the articulations between the TIBIA; FIBULA; and TALUS.
