|History: 30 y/o female with gradually worsening left foot pain over the course of a year.|

There is a hypertrophied os trigonum marrow edema of the posterior talus and the os trigonum at the synchondrosis with a small amount of fluid seen surrounding the os trigonum.
|Diagnosis: Os Trigonum Syndrome with reactive anterior tibialis, posterior tibialis and flexor digitorum longus tenosynovitis.|

An os trigonum is an accessory bone that is formed from the lack of fusion with the talus, which normally forms the trigonal process (Steida's process).
