ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Articular avulsion fracture, fifth metatarsal base

History: A 22-year-old man sustained an inversion injury to his left foot one day prior to presentation.

Findings: AP, oblique and lateral views of the left foot demonstrate a subtle transverse fracture lucency through the base of the fifth metatarsal at a distance of approximately 5 mm from the tip of the tuberosity. Note that the transverse fracture line is extra-articular and just proximal to the level of the metatarsocuboid joint. There is mild adjacent soft tissue swelling.

Ddx: Lesion at the base of the 5th metatarsal <li>Jones fracture <li>Normal apophysis <li>Avulsion of peroneus brevis tendon <li>Sesamoid bone

Dxhow: Clinical and Radiology
