Abstract: 
Ankle Fracture-Dislocation (AFD) poses a significant risk to the joint and has the potential to lead to complications and functional impairment [1]. A young male patient was referred to the OPD with complaints of left ankle pain and swelling. He has had fracture-dislocation of the left ankle 5 years ago, surgical corrected with plating and cc screw. And the patient underwent Implant removal 3 years ago, with broken cc screw left in situ. He is diagnosed as Arthritis of left ankle with varus deformity as a sequel to fracture-dislocation, Venolymphatic malformation around left ankle and leg and possible Plexiform Neurofibromatosis.
