Learn About Accessory Navicular Bone

What is the definition of Accessory Navicular Bone?
Accessory navicular bone is an extra bone or piece of cartilage located in the middle of the foot near the navicular bone, the bone that goes across the foot near the instep. It is present from birth (congenital) and is a common trait. There are three types of Accessory navicular bones which are differentiated by location, size, and tissues involved (bone and/or cartilage). Although some people with an Accessory navicular bone never develop symptoms, a bump can develop in the affected region that can lead to irritation, swelling, and pain. Inheritance appears to be autosomal dominant.
