It is believed that fractures of the anterior process of the calcaneus are relatively rare or are frequently overlooked. The manner in which this fracture is sustained may vary, but the cause is commonly believed to be forcible adduction of the fore part of the foot, combined with plantar flexion. The precise location of a trigger point aids in the diagnosis, which must be confirmed by careful roentgenographic observations. While the disability is prolonged, the prognosis is good. It is hoped that this discussion will stimulate an awareness of the condition.
