Introduction: Fracture-dislocations of tarso-metatarsal joints are rare. Association of these fractures with ankle injuries is very rare; to our knowledge not reported in the literature. Here, we report a rare case of Tarso-metatarsal (Lisfranc) dislocation with bimalleolar fracture with syndesmotic injury.
Case report: Patient was treated with closed reduction and fixation of Lisfranc injury with combination of screws and k wires and also fixation of bimalleolar and syndesmotic injury. At follow up patient achieved excellent function as assessed by AOFAS (American Orthopaedic Society Foot and Ankle Society Midfoot Score).
Conclusion: Even though extremely uncommon, early recognition of ankle injuries with uncommon lisfranc fractures & dislocations is important as prompt and simultaneous treatment of both injuries results in excellent clinical outcome.
