Avulsion calcaneal tuberosity fracture is an uncommon but potentially serious condition, with delays in treatment sometimes leading to long‑term pain, disability and functional limitation. In this article, the authors refer to a case study of a patient with a fractured calcaneal tuberosity and multiple metatarsal fractures. They also discuss the results of a literature review of fracture patterns and classifications that can aid treatment.
