ABSTRACT

Injuries to Lisfranc complex are infrequent, usually a result of high energy trauma. Upto 20% of these go unrecognized initially and can have significant long term consequences. Complete isolated dislocation of cuboid is extremely rare. When present, it is usually in conjunction with the complex injuries of hindfoot and midfoot.We report a case of 30yr old male, presenting to the emergency room after having sustained a motor vehicle accident with injury to right foot and ankle region.The injury was diagnosed to be Lisfranc injury with associated cuboid dislocation, the latter part was missed initially. Lisfranc injury is most commonly associated with second metatarsal fracture but rarely it can also be associated with cuboid dislocation which can be easily missed on initial evaluation. High suspicion of this type of injury should be present following high energy trauma as it can result in prolonged recovery and significant long term morbidity.
