Abstract A 34-year-old woman sustained a closed lateral rotatory dislocation of the ankle without a fracture. Treatment was by closed reduction and cast immobilization for 6 weeks. After removal of the cast, her ankle was stable. Stress radiographs of both the affected and contralateral ankles were normal. One year after injury the patient demonstrated a full, pain-free, stable range of motion. The patient exhibited generalized ligamentous laxity, which may have contributed to her tendency to dislocate the talus within the mortise.
