Sesamoid bones are partially or totally embedded in the substance of a corresponding tendon. Anatomically they are part of a gliding mechanism that reduces friction and protects the tendon. The sesamoid complex consists of seven muscles, eight ligaments, and two sesamoid bones and it´s pathological conditions include traumatic, degenerative, inflammatory, infectious, and ischemic processes. Most painful conditions involving the hallux sesamoid bones are, however, related to acute trauma or chronic stress. Medial tibial sesamoid bone fractures are rare and are often missed as they are treated as soft tissue injuries . Bilateral fractures are extremely rare.
