Fleck sign (foot)

The fleck sign in the foot is a small bony fragment seen in the Lisfranc space (between the base of the 1st and 2nd metatarsal) associated with avulsion of the Lisfranc ligament (at the base of the 2nd metatarsal). It is a very subtle, but important finding, since it predisposes to Lisfranc injury.
