Achilles peritendinosis: an unusual case due to frostbite in an elite athlete

J Foot Ankle Surg. Jan-Feb 1994;33(1):87-90.


Achilles peritendinosis is common in running and jumping sports and can present with or without Achilles tendinosis itself. Several authors describe this condition as associated with over-use syndromes. This article describes an Achilles peritendinosis subsequent to frostbite in an elite runner who eventually underwent surgical treatment and was able to resume running 3 weeks postoperatively.
