Muscular hernias, focal protrusions of muscle through fascial weaknesses, are uncommon in pediatric patients. When diagnosed, they are usually found on the legs from protrusions of tibialis anterior muscle in young male athletes. Here, we present a case of a healthy 16-year-old boy who developed asymptomatic nodules on the bilateral feet and lateral lower legs, which were confirmed by ultrasound to be focal muscle herniations. Our case highlights a rare example of bilateral muscle herniation in a pediatric patient and the utility of ultrasound as a diagnostic modality for this uncommon condition.
