Abstract

Subtalar dislocation is the simultaneous dislocation of the distal articulations of the talus at both
the talocalcaneal and talonavicular joints. It can occur in any direction and always produce
significant deformity. Most common is the medial dislocation (80% of cases). Less common
presentations are lateral (20% of cases), anterior and posterior dislocations. These dislocations are
associated with osteochondral fractures. Closed reduction and immobilisation remains the
mainstay of treatment. Proper radiographs and CT scan confirms the post reduction alignment
stability of subtalar joints and intraarticular fracture fragments. We report a case of medial
subtalar dislocation with no osteochondral fracture fragments in a 17-year-old young man.
