Abstract

A new treatment was used for 3 cases of congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia based on the method used for the treatment of simple bone cysts by local infiltration of steroids. All 3 cases achieved consolidation and had no recurrence. This method may be used in association with the numerous other methods used in the treatment of congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia (bone transplants, vascularized transplants using microsurgical techniques, electromagnetic induction, and the use of external fixators). It is particularly useful for cases treated at a very early age (even at a few months) when other types of treatment could be difficult to carry out and usually fail.
