Abstract

Os subfibulare is an accessory ossicle located at the distal tip of lateral malleolus. It is usually detected incidently, however, it may be misdiagnosed as lateral malleolar avulsion fracture in the clinical setting of ankle trauma. Herein, we report a case of os subfibulare which is misdiagnosed as lateral malleolar avulsion fracture and discussed its clinical and radiologic features that will help us in differential diagnosis.
