Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tibialis anterior tendon ruptures are rare but debilitating injuries. A high index of suspicion is warranted in patients presenting with atraumatic anterior ankle pain, especially in conjunction with diabetes or inflammatory disease. The authors present a case report of bilateral sequential rupture of tibialis anterior tendons, a discussion of management, and a review of the literature.
