Sesamoid Bones: The sesamoid bones are bones that may develop in areas where tendons move over a joint. These areas must withstand considerable stress and friction and can include the hands and feet. However, sesamoid bones do not develop equally in all people. The sesamoid bones form a part of the appendicular skeleton and include the patella of the knee and the pisiform bone of the wrist. Conditions that can afflict the sesamoid bones include sesamoiditis, infection, trauma, fracture, osteoporosis and osteomyelitis.
