Abstract

Swollen ankle might be a problem of differential diagnosis in young patients performing physical exercises. A mass on the posteromedial region of the ankle might be attributed to the presence of Accessory Soleus Muscle (ASM), the most common supernumerary muscle in the lower leg.

We present the case of a young male with swelling and moderate pain on the posteromedial part of the right ankle after prolonged physical exercise. Musculoskeletal examination identified ASM. A conservative approach (symptomatic medication, physical therapy) was recommended with good results.
