One hundred and thirty-four cases of stress fracture of the calcaneus in Marine Corps recruits are presented with a brief review of the literature. Advancing age and lack of physical activity prior to enlistment appear to increase the incidence of these fractures. A method of treatment is outlined, consisting in restricted activity. The only complication of these fractures is the erroneous diagnosis of a more serious condition.
