A new week means a new topic for our February theme of performance athletes!

This week is a radiology case. You can find the answers in the comments. A 24 y/o ballet dancer presents to clinic with several weeks of posterior ankle pain when on pointe and in relevé. She doesn’t experience pain in other positions. On exam, she has pain with passive, forceful plantar flexion at the ankle. Her x-ray is shown below. Name the significant radiographic finding and give the diagnosis. What is the best management option if she fails conservative therapy?
