Ankle dislocation without malleolar fracture
Ankle dislocation without malleolar fracture is rarely reported in the literature. This case report presents a 19-year-old man with a right ankle dislocation sustained during a handball game. Reduction was performed in an emergency department, and the following X-ray and MRI revealed no fracture. Given the ankle stability a Walker orthosis was applied. Upon review at two and a half weeks the patient did not wear the orthosis any longer, was found to have good function, and was fully weight-bearing. To the best of our knowledge, no such case has previously been reported in the literature.
