The accessory navicular bone is one of the most symptomatic bones of the foot. Although it has been reported:to be present in various members of the same family, there is a lack of knowledge about its inheritance in the literature. We examined three families and suggest that it has an autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance.
