Abstract

Stenosing peroneal tenosynovitis resulting from hypertrophy of the peroneal tubercle has been well described. Successful surgical treatment addresses the hypertrophied peroneal tubercle as well as any intrinsic tendon pathology. We report a case of recurrent foot pain caused by stenosing peroneal tenosynovitis in a 16-year-old woman. Four months after excision of a hypertrophic peroneal tubercle, the patient developed a recurrence of symptoms. Imaging studies, repeat operative exploration, and pathologic specimen demonstrated a recurrence of the peroneal tubercle hypertrophy associated with a longitudinal tear of the peroneus brevis tendon. Re-resection of the hypertrophied tubercle and peroneal tendon repair resulted in a resolution of symptoms.
