The anatomy of the foot, their knowledge, opens up a wide range of expectations so accurate for diagnosing various pathologies of the foot, and above all, to know you better. The purpose of this study was to look closely at the anatomy of the muscle Tertius peroneo to define its origin and insercción to the controversy raised by the literature, its function in the foot, and its frequency, it is a muscle that is not present in all feet. The third peroneo muscle, also known as peroneo Tertius, is a muscle group of the previous leg, which in the current literature is considered inconsistent, that character was not found in our study. We repeat that the authors describe as an inconstant muscle (eg. Rouvière) adjective meaning in anatomy that it is a muscle in less than 45% of cases. For Testud, in the absence black 14 times in 100, the Europeans 7 or 8 times 100, and lacking in monkeys. According to Kapandji is dorsal flexor, abductor and pronator foot. We intend to demonstrate our dissections, a muscle that is most of what appears and where is its origin and insertion, as well as its presentation and position by photographs of cadaver feet.
