Trauma that produces recurrent dislocation of the peroneal tendons often is mistaken for an ankle sprain, or occurs in conjunction with an inversion ankle sprain. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment may preclude accurate diagnosis and management. The authors present a case that illustrates this scenario and review anatomical considerations, the mechanism of the injury, and therapeutic options.
