The x-ray shows a fracture of the distal fibula, as well as of the proximal fifth metatarsal.

This patient was placed in a cast splint. His parents were advised to follow up with an orthopedist.

Coincidentally, this was one of two cases on the same day at the same facility in which there were fractures of both of the fibula and metatarsal—a reminder that we always need to check both.
