Spontaneous rupture of the extensor retinaculum of the ankle is a rare condition, only reported a few times in the literature. We present a case report of a spontaneous rupture of the ankle extensor retinaculum, which was reconstructed with a fascia lata autograft, along with a discussion of the literature.
