Traction apophysitis of the accessory ossification center of the medial malleolus is infrequently reported. Traction apophysitis of both the accessory ossification centers of medial malleoli is very rare. This entity is also reported as osteochondrosis of medial malleolus in literature. We present a case of traction apophysitis of accessory ossification centers of both the medial malleoli in an 11-year-old boy of Indian origin, who presented with pain and swelling over both the ankle with plano-valgus deformity of feet. His imaging revealed fragmented accessory ossification center of medial malleoli on both the sides. He was treated non-operatively and followed through one year to see the eventual fate.
