Dance is a fascinating artistic activity, although highly demanding as regards physical and technical skills. It forces dancers in major loads which lead to musculoskeletal problems, with ankle injuries being undoubtedly amongst the most common dance injuries.

Posterior Tibialis Tendonitis although not common, it may be a debilitating pathology affecting female classical ballet dancers, especially when anatomical foot abnormalities are present.

Clinicians dealing with dance injuries should be aware of this existing, although rare pathological entity, due to the fact that it may prove to have harmful influence on a dancer’s career.

In this review an analysis of the basic aspects of pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of this specific clinical entity is conducted, with special focus on dancers.
