Dislocation of the calcaneocuboid joint presenting as lateral instability of the ankle

Download PDF


A 16-year-old professional female ballet student sustained a plantar flexion-inversion injury to her left ankle while dancing. Clinical examination and MRI suggested subluxation of the tibiotalar joint. However, accurate diagnosis was hampered by a transient palsy of the common peroneal nerve. It was subsequently established that she had also sustained a dislocation of her calcaneocuboid joint, a rare injury, which was successfully stabilised by using a hamstring graft. The presentation and management of this rare condition are discussed.
