Lover's fracture, also known as Don Juan fracture or Casanova fracture is a type of calcaneal fracture. They are fractures of the calcaneal body and may be intra- or extra-articular.
History and etymology
The name "lover's fracture" is derived from the fact that a suitor may jump from great heights while trying to escape from the lover's spouse 2. There is an important association between lover's fractures and burst fractures of the lumbar spine.
