Abstract

A 37-year-old man presented following an inversion plantar flexion injury to the left foot and ankle. Dislocation of the cuboid without associated fracture was identified and successfully treated by closed reduction. The patient was immobilized in a walking cast for seven weeks after surgery and no further dislocation occurred.
