Distal fibular tumors are rare. Following neoadjuvant treatment, a local disease control could be achieved by a wide local resection. However, it remains challenging to stabilize the joint and preserve motion. This is a case report of a young athlete treated with wide distal fibular resection for Ewing Sarcoma. We herein, describe a novel lateral ankle reconstruction technique using a gracilis tendon autograft that achieved a stable ankle joint and allowed patient to return to sports.
