Calcaneus, navicular bone and the head of the second metatarsal bone are the most frequent localization of osteochondrosis in the foot (up to 20% of the whole localizations). Localization in the talus, in the cuneiforms and in other metatarsal bones are rare; extraordinary in the sesamoids and in other accessory bones of the foot.
