Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) is an entrapment neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve or one of its branches within the tarsal tunnel, and is often caused by ganglia, lipoma, accessory muscles, varicosities, neural tumours, trauma and systemic diseases. We have successfully treated a patient with tarsal tunnel syndrome which was associated with os sustentaculi.
