Abstract

A 22-year old lady, had a twisting injury to her left ankle followed by pain on prolonged weight bearing and walking. Magnetic resonance imaging with computed tomography correlation was done which showed an isolated cuboid stress fracture. Isolated cuboid stress fractures are very rare and are usually misdiagnosed as ankle sprains.
