An accessory, distal focus of epiphyseal ossification may develop in either malleolus. These foci are not anatomically separate entities, even though they appear to be radiographically. They usually are asymptomatic. However, they may be injured, either acutely or chronically. The diagnosis of such injury by conventional radiography is limited. Bone scintigraphy may be positive if there is a stress fracture.
