Abstract/Notes

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe a patient with a fracture of the Stieda process.

Clinical Features: A 39-year-old woman presented with pain and swelling of her left ankle immediately following a boogie boarding accident a few days earlier. Her clinical presentation was similar to that of an ankle sprain.

Intervention and Outcome: Radiographs were ordered, and a fracture of a normal variant, the Stieda process, was identified. Non-displacement of the fracture fragment was managed with conservative treatment consisting of a short-leg cast for 6 weeks. The fracture healed without complications.

Conclusion: The importance of early recognition of this fracture helped with proper management and a favorable outcome.
