There is a comminuted intra-articular fracture of the base of the metatarsal of the right fifth toe. The appearances are that of an avulsion fracture ( pseudo-Jones fracture ). The mid foot alignment is normal.
The fracture is located 1 cm distal to the joint, whereas a Jones fracture is typically located at least 2 cm distal to the joint. A Jones fracture does not involve the joint.
