The authors present a brief review of the literature with an unusual case presentation of Lisfranc's dislocation. The authors review the mechanism of injury, presentation, and treatment alternatives for both acute trauma-related injuries and neuropathic-related injuries to the Lisfranc's joint. The authors discuss the controversy surrounding the preferred treatment of neuropathic-associated injuries and suggest that possibly criteria may be established for fusion versus conservative care of these injuries.
