Congenital pseudathrosis of tibia is rare but perhaps the most difficult condition to treat. These tibiae are abnormal and as a result of this they become bowed anteriorly and develop pathological fractures which may occur before or after birth. It is because of the nature of the lesion that some of the authorities have even advocated an early amputation (Lloyd-Roberts and Shaw 1969, Hardings 1972). There are various types of surgical approaches to manage the congenital pseudarthrosis of tibia (Boyd 1941, Mcfarland 1951, Charnley 1956, Charnley 1956, Sofield and Millar 1959). However, the studies undertaken so far reveal that no single type of surgical approach assures uniformly successful results. The purpose of this paper is to record the author’s observations on fixation of the mother’s fibula as a graft between the proximal end of the tibia and the talus after excision of the defective bone in the management of these patients. A report of 5 such cases is being put forward.
