ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Fracture of the base of the fifth metatarsal (Jones Fracture)

History: 73 year old woman stepped off a curb and inverted her left foot. She felt a pop and experienced significant pain in her left lateral foot. She is unable to bear weight without pain.

Findings: AP, lateral, and oblique radiographs of the left foot reveal a nondisplaced transverse fracture through the base of the fifth metatarsal. This fracture does not involve the joint. There is normal anatomic alignment. Hallux valgus is noted. Joint spaces are preserved. There is no evidence of soft tissue swelling.

Ddx: 1. Jones Fracture 2. Pseudo-Jones Fracture (avulsion fracture of peroneus brevis tendon insertion) 3. Accessory centers of ossification (sesamoid bones) - os vesalianum & os peroneum

Dxhow: Plain Radiograph

Exam: The patient was unable to bear weight without pain. Ecchymosis and mild local swelling was present over lateral side of her left foot. There was tenderness to palpation over the base of her fifth metatarsal. She was neurovascularly intact distally, and there was no knee or hip tenderness.

No MeSH data available.
