Ilizarov fixator system plays an important role in modern orthopedics due to its multiple uses. Complications related to its use are well documented and have been classified by many authors in the past. In this case report, we describe a rare complication of saphenous nerve dysfunction secondary to it getting entrapped in its course by a transfixation wire during the process of bone transport. The diagnosis and management of this complication has been discussed with an intention to make the surgeons aware of similar situation in their own practice.
