Stress fractures are common overuse injuries of the bone that are most often seen in athletes and military personnel. These types of injuries seem to be commonly missed or delayed in diagnosis. Physicians should consider the possibility of such an injury while determining the diagnosis of a long-lasting foot pain. The aim of this paper was to report an isolated stress fracture of the lateral cuneiform bone. A review of the literature failed to find a similar case.
