Fracture of the anterior superior process of the calcaneus has been considered an unusual injury. Following a sudden twist there is immediate pain on the outer aspect of the mid-portion of the foot and discomfort on weight-bearing. Three mechanisms of injury have been reported to cause the fracture. The diagnosis is often missed, and prolonged disability and local pain at the calcaneocuboid joint deserve further consideration. Oblique X-rays of the foot are helpful to visualize the fracture. Type III fractures may cause cartilage lesions and arthrosis; therefore, one should not wait long before excision or refixation of the fragment.
