Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica is a rare developmental disorder affecting one or more epiphyses in a limb or a tarsal or carpal bone. It is due to abnormal cartilage proliferation with subsequent endochondral ossification and generally involves the medial or lateral half of the epiphysis. Our case involved the lateral aspect of the distal femoral epiphysis, which was managed with local resection.
