The increase of popularity in sports as Roller Skating, Figure Skating and Ice Hockey has simultaneously increased the number of skating-related injuries. Lesions of chronic dermatological nature and muscle and tendon lesions have high number of case reports. Ankle and foot are peculiarly involved and this condition suggests the correlation with the use of the skating boot, which with its high-cut and hard-fit changes the joint biomechanics and function and, as a result, the intergumentary system is continuously damaged by the compression and rubbing on the foot. The frequent onset of non-septic chronic relapsing bursitis at the level of the malleolar region is common in all sports requiring the use of skating boots. The conservative treatment is usually compromised by the repetition of the traumatic event due to the use of the skating boot. The case report of a 19 year old professional figure skater affected by non-septic relapsing malleolar bursitis at the level of the malleolar region is presented.
