Accessory foot muscle-MRI

This is a 30 year old with swelling on the lateral aspect of foot with evidence of soft tissue lesion in relation to the lateral aspect of the talus which appears isointense to the muscles on T1 and T2 weighted images & appears elongated extending from the anterosuperior calcaneum to the base of the 5th metatarsal. These findings may possible indicate an accessory muscle. Appearance may correspond to accessory abductor muscle of the fifth toe (which has been occasionally described in literature). Clinical correlation was suggested.

An x-ray technician told me about a similar condition. Interesting!
