A total of 27 patients with Iselin’s apophysitis were retrospectively analyzed for presentation, treatment, and clinical outcome. The mean age of presentation was 11.5 years (range: 9.2–15 years). All patients played sports, and their symptomatic severity and acuity varied. Treatments included rest, footwear modification, use of a controlled ankle movement boot, and use of a post-op shoe. Treatment lasted for an average of 24 days (range: 14–33 days), and the average time to return to play was 38 days (range: 14–53 days). All cases healed, with three reinjuries and no nonunions. Six cases were initially misdiagnosed as a fracture or tendonitis, indicating the need for further education on the diagnosis and natural history of Iselin’s apophysitis. aPenn State College of Medicine bDepartment of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, Penn State Milton S.
