We report the case of a young girl with recurrent sharp pain in the outer aspect of the ankle. She had no previous trauma. High-resolution US (HRUS) showed a complete intermittent dislocation of the peroneal tendons. Post-traumatic chronic peroneal instability is quite common, whereas complete dislocation is rare. HRUS is an important adjunct to clinical examination and radiographic evaluation of patients with musculoskeletal disorders of the foot and ankle . This paper reports its value in non-traumatic recurrent dislocation of the peroneal tendons.
