Isolated medial cuneiform fracture: review of the literature and report of two cases

Foot Ankle Int. 2000 Feb;21(2):150-3. doi: 10.1177/107110070002100210.


The authors present two unusual cases of isolated medial cuneiform fracture. Both fractures were difficult to see on plain films and therefore diagnosed with ancillary tests (computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging). Treatment was nonweightbearing cast immobilization, in which both patients healed within twelve weeks of treatment without complication and returned to full work related activities.
