47 Possible Causes for Anterior Bowing of Tibia

  • Weismann Netter Syndrome

    The Weismann-Netter syndrome is a rare, heritable dysplasia of anterior bowing of tibiae and fibulae, often with lateral bowing of femora, short stature, and mild mental retardation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The characteristic feature of this condition is anterior bowing of the tibia and fibula with thickened cortex posteriorly, which in the great majority of the reported cases[birpublications.org] […] diaphyseal bowing of the tibia and fibula, broadening of the fibula, posterior cortical thickening of both bones and short stature.[orpha.net]

  • Syphilis

  • Fibular Hemimelia

Calf atrophy was present in all seven patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case Images Diagnosis Findings CR – Lateral radiograph of the right leg shows a short thin fibula, anterior bowing of the tibia and absence of the lateral 2 rays of the foot[advancedradteaching.com]

  • Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica

    The diagnosis workup for primary HPT included Physical examination revealed kyphoscoliotic chest, bow-shaped thigh and crura deformities, and bone excrescence on the anterior[bone-abstracts.org] […] surface of the left tibia.[bone-abstracts.org]

  • Adamantinoma

    […] cortex of the tibial diaphysis; - minor anterior bowing of the tibia is frequently seen - extensive histologic evaluation is necessary to distinguish lesions in the spectrum[wheelessonline.com] The radiological signs suggestive of fibrous dysplasia such as ground glass appearance, anterior bowing or pseudoarthrosis of tibia were absent.[ijri.org] In addition, this case also showed that involvement of the anterior tibial surface can produce bowing of the tibia [6].[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

  • Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia

    bowing with a cystic lesion or pre fracture Type IV : Anterior bowing with a frank fracture and pseudarthrosis, usually involving the tibia and fibula Boyd Type I : Anterior[pseudarthrose.ch] Due to segmental disturbances in periosteal bone formation, anterior bowing occurs, and pathologic fractures eventually develop.[e-aps.org] However, Andersen described a rare late onset type developing in a tibia, which is normal at birth but develops anterior bowing between the ages of 4 and 12 years.

  • Hemimelia

    His tibia has anterior bowing that often happens with fibular hemimelia, so the physician and patient are questioning at what level to amputate.[opedge.com]

  • Anorchia

    The characteristic skeletal deformity is severe anterior bowing of both tibiae.[pediatricurologybook.com]

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    Bowing of the tibia is the most common presentation and occurs in about 2% of those with NF1.[patient.info] Thinning and angulation of long bones with prominence of the anterior tibia and progressive deformity can occur throughout early childhood.[patient.info] Bowing of the forearm is less common. Fracture can occur spontaneously or after trivial injury, and NF should be considered as a differential for non-accidental injury.[patient.info]

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 2

    Bowing of the tibia is the most common presentation and occurs in about 2% of those with NF1.[patient.info] Thinning and angulation of long bones with prominence of the anterior tibia and progressive deformity can occur throughout early childhood.[patient.info] Bowing of the forearm is less common. Fracture can occur spontaneously or after trivial injury, and NF should be considered as a differential for non-accidental injury.[patient.info]
