Ok: Longitudinal fibula deficiency is the most common limb deformity. It is usually unilateral. Paraxial fibulae hememelia is the most common manifestation. Clinically the limb is shortened, the foot in a valgus position. The main problem is leg length inequality and foot instability. Treatment range from leg lengthening procedures to amputation to foot stabilizatio. See pediatric orthopedic surgeon.
