TI - Rupture of the extensor hood of the fifth toe: a rare injury.

AB - Closed injuries of the extensor hood of the lesser toes are rare and seldom
reported in the literature. We present the case of a woman aged 25 years who
presented to the orthopaedic fracture clinic with a 2-week history of pain in the
left fifth toe and inability to extend following a ballet dancing session.
Investigations showed no fracture on plain radiographs, but an ultrasound scan
demonstrated rupture to the extensor hood of the little toe. Successful surgical
repair of the extensor hood was performed, and the patient made a good recovery
with return to dancing activities.
