Fracture Dislocation of Metatarsal Bones I-V in 4 Year Old Girl


A case study of a 4-year-old girl who sustained a dislocated fracture of all 5 metatarsal bones when a table fell on her left foot is presented. Due to substantial sagittal displacement, operative treatment was required. After open reduction, we fixed the fractures with K-wires. Four weeks after the operation, the bones had healed in their anatomic positions and the patient was able to walk without pain.
