Foot Case 4 History/Physical Exam
Calcaneus fracture with loss of Bohler's angle
History and Physical Exam
The clinician should be especially suspicious for calcaneal fracture:
- if there is a fall or jump from a height
- if there is pain upon squeezing the heel
- if there is ecchymosis that tracks distally to the sole of the foot (the Mondor sign).
Patients will be unable to bear weight.
