Abstract

In seven cases of Lisfranc joint injury after trauma, bunion deformity developed. This "traumatic bunion" occurs over a prolonged period of time after injury. A high index of suspicion is needed to identify the deformity as being traumatic in origin. Injury about the first metatarsophalangeal joint complex may also contribute to this deformity. When recognized, it may need to be treated with a first metatarsal-cuneiform fusion and distal soft tissue realignment.
