Kohler’s Disease

Kohler’s disease is a rare condition that causes the bones in the arch of the foot to become inflamed. Avascular necrosis is also sometimes incorporated with Kohler’s disease, leading to a lack of blood supply to the bones, leading to its breakdown and hardening. Thus, pain and swelling will occur.
