The case presented is that of a man aged 54 years,with hypertrophic pseudarthrosis shortening by 3 cm and a femoral mechanical axis measuring 13 degrees varus. Parafocal osteotomy according to Paltrinieri was carried out with the aim of correcting the varus femur, the shortening and,secondarily, of obtaining recovery from the pseudarthrosis. Osteosynthesis was achieved by the Ilizarov apparatus. Axial correction and lengthening were obtained after 33 days. The fixator was removed after 5 months and 10 days, during wich the nonunion appeared healed.
