Abstract [es]

Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia (CPT) is an uncommon disease presenting a tibial nonunion since birth and frequently associated to neurofibromatosis type 1. Surgical management by wide excision of the pseudoarthrosis and sustitution of the defect with vascularized bone in an early stage has proven to be the most effective technique in terms of bone consolidation. We present a clinical case of a 22-month-old patient with CPT treated successfully by reconstruction with a free vascularized fibula graft with an excellent functional result.
