Abstract: The tarsal coalition corresponds to the abnormal osseous, cartilaginous or fibrous joining between two or more bones in the midfoot or hindfoot. The anteater nose sign is caused by a tubular elongation of the anterior process of the calcaneus that approaches or overlaps the tarsal scaphoid (navicular) and resembles the nose of an anteater on a lateral foot or ankle radiograph. Keywords: Anteater nose, Tarsal coalition, Calcaneus - scaphoid. Resumen: La coalicion tarsal corresponde a la union anormal, ya sea osea, cartilaginosa o fibrosa, entre dos o mas huesos del retro o medio pie. El signo de la nariz del oso hormiguero es causada por un alargamiento...
