ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Lauge Hansen Stage IV Supination-External Rotation Fracture

History: 14 year-old adolescent who twisted ankle after jumping off curb.

Findings: There is an obliquely-oriented, comminuted fracture through the distal fibula, nondisplaced medial malleolar fracture, and obvious external rotation / disloctation of the talus with respect to the mortise. A posterior tibia fracture is also suggested on the lateral view, although position is admittedly suboptimal.

Ddx: Ankle Fracture-Dislocation

Dxhow: Radiographic Diagnosis

Exam: Gross deformation of the right ankle, swelling, ecchymosis, instability and pain.

No MeSH data available.


Lateral view of the right ankle demonstrates swelling and gross deformity with posterior talar dislocation and rotation.  Note fracures of fibula and medial malleolus, and cortical irregularity along the posterior tibia.
