Abstract
Posterior facet talocalcaneal coalition is one of the rarest forms of taloc alcaneal coalition. When a posterior facet coalition occurs, it typically i nvolves a majority of the posterior facet articular surface. The authors pr esent a rare form of posterior facet talocalcaneal coalition in an 11-year- old girl. A brief review of the literature is provided, along with the case history, including radiographic findings and intraoperative and postoperat ive illustrations.
