ALVAREZ, María Fernanda; BUENO, Camilo Alfonso  and  BALLESTEROS, Luis Ernesto. Agenesis of the Medial Gastrocnemius and Plantar Muscle: Case Presentation. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.34-36. ISSN 0717-9502.

We present the case of a left medial gastrocnemius and plantar muscle agenesis in a 58-years old male cadaveric specimen from the Anatomy Laboratory at the Universidad Industrial de Santander (Bucaramanga-Colombia). These unusual muscle absences and associated functional alterations, enrich anatomical knowledge and become important by the time the affected individual may need a reconstructive procedure.

Keywords : Agenesis; Medial gastrocnemius; Plantar muscle.
