Guy Patin (1692) was the first to describe a rare congenital disorder which was subsequently named as Myositis Ossificans Progressiva by Vondusch (1863). The condition is frequently associated with anomalies such as microdactyly (Helferich 1879) and hallux-valgus (Ryan 1945). Mather (1931) and Ryan (1945) suggested that this disease occurs exclusively in white races, but this was disproved when Grewal and Dass (1953) reported a case of an Indian child suffering from it. Since then 6 cases have been reported from this country. Because of its rare occurrence, the authors are availing the opportunity to present a similar case.
