Mueller-Weiss syndrome: spontaneous tarsal navicular osteonecrosis Volume 22, issue 4, Décembre 2006


Mueller-Weiss syndrome is idiopathic navicular bone necrosis in adults. This disorder differs from children's osteochondritis (Kohler disease) and secondary navicular necrosis.

We report a case of a patient with no risk factors who presented with a primary navicular bone necrosis treated with talocuneiforms joint arthrodesis, with bone autograft taken from the iliac spine.
