Abstract

Fractures of talus are relatively uncommon injuries with majority of them involving the neck region. Talar body fracture in sagittal plane in combination with medial malleolus fracture is very rare with few cases being reported in the literature earlier. We report such an unusual combination in an adolescent, which was treated with open reduction and internal fixation with screws for both talus and medial malleolus. This was followed by physiotherapy and non-weight bearing till the fracture united.
