A 58-year-old woman with a diagnosis of a tear of the posterior tibial tendon associated with the os accessory navicular fracture was treated surgically. We believe that the dysfunction of the posterior tibial tendon was associated with an os accessory navicular fracture. This case is proposed as a new subclassification that was separate from the traditional classification of the tear of the posterior tibial tendon.
