Abstract

Fracture dislocations in the foot region may be complex and it is difficult to recognize all injuries in standard radiographic examinations. This report represents a case with an irreducible fifth metatarsophalangeal dislocation and associated fracture of forth metatarsal neck. A closed reduction of metatarsophalangeal joint was not possible because of trapped fifth metatarsal head between adjacent forth metatarsal neck fracture fragments.
