What is congenital tibial pseudarthrosis?
Anterolateral Bowing and Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the tibia are conditions present from birth and can be associated with Neurofibromatosis Type 1. With these conditions patients see an increased risk of fracture, or fractures that develop as a result of minor injury. Patients with this condition see a lateral, curved appearance in the tibial bone that is usually apparent within the first two years of life. Though conservative treatments such as bracing may help the condition, they do not stop its progression.
