Abstract

An intermetatarsal coalition is an uncommon pathologic entity, previously reported in published studies as being primarily unilateral, most commonly between the first and second metatarsals and less so between the third and fourth metatarsals. We report an unusual case of a bilateral coalition of the third and fourth metatarsals in a 43-year-old male who presented with nonspecific dorsolateral foot pain. Conservative therapy initially failed, and resolution of pain was noted bilaterally after coalition resection.
