Abstract

Dislocation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is rare. Closed reduction is often impossible due to soft tissue interposition. A case is presented and the literature is reviewed with emphasis on normal and pathologic anatomy. Treatment recommendation is open reduction performed as soon as possible following injury if the dislocation cannot be reduced by closed methods.
