Abstract Posteromedial ankle dislocation without malleolar fracture is a rare injury. Six patients who suffered from this injury were reviewed. The deltoid ligament was not at risk in this particular type of dislocation. Those patients without chondral lesion have a good long-term prognosis if prompt reduction is performed. Associated chondral lesion is a significant contributing factor to late development of ankle osteoarthrosis. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
