A case presentation of a severe ankle sprain in which the patient was nonresponsive to routine therapies is presented. Repeat radiographs and computerized axial tomographic scans (CAT Scans) lead to the final diagnosis of a sagittal plane fracture of the talus. The clinical and radiographic evaluation leading to the diagnosis will be presented, and the surgical and postoperative managements will be discussed.
