Painful Os Peroneum Syndrome: Underdiagnosed Condition in the Lateral Midfoot Pain

Published: 5 July 2016
Case Reports in Radiology , Volume 2016, pp 1-4; doi:10.1155/2016/8739362

Abstract: Os peroneum is an accessory ossicle located within the peroneus longus tendon. The painful os peroneum syndrome (POPS) results from a wide spectrum of conditions, including fractures, diastases, and other causes. POPS can result in tenosynovitis or discontinuity of the peroneus longus tendon with a clinical presentation of pain in the lateral aspect of the midfoot. Authors report a typical case of POPS, illustrating this entity through different imaging methods (radiographs, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging). We emphasize the prevalence of this ossicle and discuss painful complications.
