Author(s): Ganesh Singh Dharmshaktu, Shailendra Singh Bhandari
Abstract: Forefoot injuries are common occurrences demanding appropriate detection and treatment to ensure optimal functional outcome. Missed or mismanaged care leads to morbid sequelae complicating the management. Assessment for concomitant bony and soft tissue injuries holds due importance for uneventful recovery. Often the metatarsal fractures of central region are multiple, second to fourth, and the presence of little toe metatarso-phalangeal (MTP) dislocation with it makes it a rare injury pattern here managed successfully with appropriate management.
