Abstract: Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the tibia (CPT) is one of the challenging problems in paediatric orthopedic surgery. It is usually associated either with neurofibromatosis or fibrous dysplasia. Different techniques for the management of CPT are present.

We are presenting a case of adult neglected Pseudarthrosis of tibia treated by ilizarov ring fixator and corticotomy. PTB brace used to maintain union.
