Subtle undisplaced fracture of the base of the proximal phalanx of the little toe.
Pretty subtle fracture of the proximal phalanx, observed only on the oblique projection.
Couple of practical life lessons:
- orthogonal views in trauma are for a good reason. Often the pathology if only seen on one view.
- with high volumes and the need to report efficiently with so many normals this kind of finding is easy to miss.
This is an ideal rapid reporting radiograph.
