Although many authors consider Müller- Weiss syndrome as a osteonecrosis, it is a navicular dysplasia occurring in childhood that remains asymptomatic until adulthood. It is caused by a delay in the ossification of the navicular associated with the compression of the lateral portion of the tarsal navicular by the talus that is shifting laterally and in varus. There is usually bilateral and symmetrical involvement.
