Abstract: The history of a 17-year-old female patient with pseudoachondroplasia, with an extreme bilateral genu recurvatum due to tibial growth disturbance, is presented. She was treated by the Ilizarov method over a nine- month period for consecutive bilateral correction of the lower legs, leading to an excellent functional result. The authors advocate the Ilizarov method as the treatment of choice for severe juxta-articular osseous deformities, where the technical limits of a standard osteotomy with internal fixation are being exceeded.
