Examples from the Web for peronei
When the eversion is more pronounced, the sole looks laterally and the tendons of the peronei stand out in relief.
The peronei are displaced from their grooves, and may lie in front of the lateral malleolus.
In the peronei tendons, for example, it may result from disease of the fibula or of the ankle-joint.
At the ankle it affects the peronei, the extensor digitorum longus, or the tibialis anterior.
Motor paralysis of the peronei followed, together with general lowering of tactile sensation in the musculo-cutaneous area.Surgical Experiences in South Africa, 1899-1900|George Henry Makins
