A 52-year-old woman tripped and fell down three stairs, everted her left ankle, and now complains of 10/10 pain. She denies hitting her head, loss of consciousness, paresthesias, or focal weakness. She also denies hip, foot, or knee pain.

This radiograph shows her affected ankle. What is the diagnosis? What is the management of this injury? What is a common complication of this injury? See p. 42.
