No acute fracture. Normal alignment of the Lisfranc joint.
There is a small bone fragment projected medial to the head of the fifth metatarsal, which likely represents an old injury.
Incidental note is made of melorheostosis in the distal shaft of the third metatarsal.
This case illustrates an incidental finding of melorheostosis in a patient with a traumatic presentation. This finding may be worth highlighting to the clinicians to avoid confusion for another pathology.
