Re: cuboid bone

The os peroneum is an accessory sesamoid bone that sits in the Peroneus longus tendon near the cuboid. I seems to function to increase the strength of the tendon as it turns to the bottom of the foot.

I have seen several fractures of the os peroneum and have removed several due to continued problems. My recommendation is you see a podiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. The cuboid dislocating may or may not be related to the Os Peroneum
