PMID: 35769662.


This report describes a case of bilateral acute ankle syndesmosis injuries in a 15-year-old male basketball player. The patient had a background of previous inversion injuries but no symptoms of chronic pain or instability. The case report illustrates the importance of clinical suspicion when evaluating acute syndesmosis injuries in conjunction with radiographic assessments in primary care. This is the first reported case of such injury in bilateral limbs.
