Osteochondritis of the Navicular (Kohler’s disease)

Osteochondritis or Kohler's disease is a rare condition, affecting children in which the navicular bone (a bone in the arch of the foot) becomes inflamed. Although it is unclear why it occurs, there is a limited blood supply to the navicular, which results in avascular necrosis (bone deterioration). Over time the bone will heal and harden, however during the process the inner arch of the food becomes swollen, painful and tender to touch.
