Anatomical terms of bone

The medial cuneiform (also known as first cuneiform) is the largest of the cuneiforms.

It is situated at the medial side of the foot, anterior to the navicular bone and posterior to the base of the first metatarsal. Lateral to is the intermediate cuneiform.

It articulates with four bones: the navicular, second cuneiform, and first and second metatarsals.

The tibialis anterior and fibularis longus muscle inserts at the medial cuneiform bone.[1]
