Hemimelic epiphyseal dysplasia, also known as Trevor disease, is a rare, nonhereditary epiphyseal disease of unknown etiology that simulates chondromatosis in the synovial joints. The most commonly involved sites are the distal femur, proximal tibia, talus, and navicular. The complaint is usually related to deformity and limited range of motion from the affected joint. The disease stops when skeletal maturity is completed; however, deformities will persist.The treatment should be customized depending on the symptoms and functional limitations resulting from the deformities. Usually, begins with analgesic physiotherapy and stretching. In cases where conservative treatment fails surgery becomes an option. The purpose of surgery is to resect the ossification leading to a reduction in functional limitations.This case report is about a patient who came to our hospital in 2011, when he was 4 years old and complaining of a progressive increase in right ankle volume with limited dorsiflexion of the right foot and difficulty in playing sports for the past year.
