Abstract

Two patients with syndesmotic rupture without fracture are presented to demonstrate that ligamentous injury to the distal syndesmosis can occur as an isolated injury. In both cases diagnosis was delayed owing to a negative radiograph on the day of injury. Comprehensive follow-up is imperative to correctly diagnose this injury pattern.
