Abstract

We report the case of an isolated fracture of the posteromedial tubercle of the talar process caused by a posterior tackle in a football player, which is an unusual and misdiagnosed fracture leading to a nonunion causing a chronic ankle pain. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case demonstrating the major interest of SPECT/CT to diagnose an unusual nonunion of the posteromedial tubercle of the talus.
