Abstract

Stress fracture is rare in children. It is mostly described in adolescent involved in sports, athletics or dancing. Stress fracture in club foot is extremely rare; it might be due to the altered anatomy and may be a source of pain. We present a 6 year old girl with bilateral relapsed club feet with stress fracture of the proximal third of the fourth metatarsal on the left side. Correction of them deformity, cast immobilization and non-weight bearing led to the union of the fracture. Early correction of the deformity is justified to prevent recurrence of fractures.
