Cleft foot is a congenital anomaly characterized by absence of the metatarsal bones and phalanges. It is commonly seen in children with Ectrodactyly-ectrodermal dysplasia and clefting syndrome (EEC) ranging from a median cleft up to the mid metatarsals to a deep cleft up to the tarsal bones. Surgical treatment in the form of cleft closure, excision of the rudimentary metatarsal bone and cross K-wire fixation of metatarsal bones have been tried for the management of such cases. Here, we report a case of one year old child with Type III cleft foot having four metatarsals, who was treated with suture-endobutton system using three transverse tunnels in the 2nd and 3rd metatarsal bones in order to bring them closer. We were able to achieve a satisfactory outcome with a normal fitting shoe wear.
