Abstract Ankle dislocation without fracture is an extremely rare injury. Open dislocations were more common in the previous reports. The authors report a case of closed posteromedial dislocation of the ankle in a 24-year-old basketball player. Closed reduction was performed. The ankle was initially immobilized with the short leg cast before using the functional brace. Details of the rehabilitation program were described. Follow up examination at one-year demonstrated good clinical and functional results confirmed with the inversion stress radiographs. The patient can participate in sports activities at the same level as pre-injury.
