Three cases of fracture of the anterior process of the calcaneus are reported.
The injury is thought to be common but is believed to be hitherto undescribed.
The injury is probably caused by forcible plantar-flexion of the foot.
The treatment is immobilization in a circular plaster cast for three or four weeks followed by physiotherapy.
