Ankle pain is a common presenting complaint in the ambulatory or emergent setting with the usual etiologies being trauma or sports related injuries. The mechanism is typically traumatic secondary to a twisting-type injury. There is a subset of patients presenting with ankle pain that are due to less common etiologies such as osteochondral lesions of the talar dome, plantar fasciitis and sinus tarsi ganglia to name a few. The purpose of the poster is to educate the viewer about the less common causes of ankle pain and to emphasis a working differential diagnosis for ankle pain.
