Abstract

Metallosis has been reported in the setting of weight-bearing joint arthroplasties, like the hip and knee joints. However, the prevalence of metallosis in non-articular portions is very uncommon. We report a rare case of a patient who had metallosis secondary by fibular nonunion after fixation with plate and screw. In addition, we discuss the clinical and the operative findings, as well as the outcome of this uncommon complication.
