Trauma to the feet is common and is often followed by fractures, so that approximately 10% of all fractures occur in the pedal skeleton (Rogers 1992). Often the patient’s history is difficult to evaluate because the patient is not able to describe the mechanism of the accident. In most cases the patient complains only of a “twisted foot.” Therefore, it is not easy to differentiate between lesions of the ankle and lesions of the foot.
