Abstract

A 28-year-old woman fell and sustained an isolated anterolateral dislocation of the proximal fibula. This injury generally presents with a characteristic history and associated physical examination and radiographic findings, but the subtle nature of the salient findings contributes to a high degree of misdiagnosis. Emergency physicians should be familiar with this injury because early reduction reduces long-term morbidity.
