Fibular Hemimelia

Fibular Hemimelia

There is little information on fibular hemimelia because it is so rare. It can be scary for new parents who aren’t sure what is wrong with their child, especially when their doctors haven’t seen a case of Fibular Hemimelia. Fibular Hemimelia, currently called Longitudinal Fibular Deficiency, is characterized by a completely missing or partially missing fibula bone. Each person’s leg has two bones-the tibia and fibula- and people with fibular hemimelia are missing part or all of their fibula. Due to the absence of this bone, it often results in a bowed tibia, with the affected leg being shorter than the non-affected leg.
