Osteochondral lesions of the ankle joint are typically located on the talus and frequently reported in athletes. In contrast, osteochondral lesions of the distal tibia are rare injuries of the ankle joint. The case of a 21-year-old male is presented who complained of ankle pain without any previous injury. An osteochondral lesion of the distal tibia was treated with osteochondral cylindrical autograft from the knee joint. The operative technique of mosaicplasty involving transfer of a bone-cartilage cylinder from the knee to the ankle is well known for the talus and proved to be applicable to the distal tibia as well.
