Résumé

Les fractures des os sésamoïdes du pied sont rares. Le sésamoïde fibulaire est moins lésé que le tibial. Les traumatismes rencontrés peuvent être directs ou indirects. Nous rapportons le cas d’une fracture du sésamoïde fibulaire secondaire à un traumatisme indirect par hyperextension forcée de la métatarsophalangienne du gros orteil. À travers cette observation et une revue de la littérature, l’anatomie et la biomécanique des os sésamoïdes seront rappelées, le mécanisme et les modalités diagnostiques et thérapeutiques des fractures du sésamoïde seront discutés.

Fracture of the fibular sesamoid bone: case report and literature review

Abstract

Fractures of the sesamoid bones of the foot are rare. Injuries to the fibular sesamoid are less compared to the tibial. The mechanism of trauma may be direct or indirect. We report the case of a fracture of fibular sesamoid secondary to indirect trauma by forced hyperextension of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the hallux. Through this observation and a review of the literature, anatomy and biomechanics of the sesamoid bones will be recalled as the mechanism and modalities of diagnosis and treatment of sesamoid fractures are discussed.
