Anterior subtalar dislocations are extremely rare. To our knowledge, six cases have been reported in detail in the literature, but for only two of these was an anteroposterior view radiograph used to confirm the diagnosis. We report a case of anterior subtalar dislocation in which the posterior tibialis tendon was incarcerated in the talonavicular joint and that required an open reduction. We discuss the diagnosis, mechanism, and treatment.
