Apert's syndrome (acrocephalosyndactyly type 1) is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by the progressive synostoses of the skull, spine, hands and feet. It is caused by a mutation affecting the fibroblastic growth factor type 2 receptors. While there are many descriptions of the hands in this condition, there are few previous reports concerning the anatomy of the feet. We present a new case with bilateral additional metatarsal bones, a condition we cannot find described in the literature, and discuss previously reported foot abnormalities.
