Atraumatic Acute Compartment Syndrome in Isolated Medial Compartment of Foot, A Rare Case Report
Abstract: Acute compartment syndrome usually occurs after a traumatic event, typically in association with a fracture, but also from a soft tissue injury such as a direct blow or crush. Acute, isolated, medial compartment syndrome of the foot without a specific major trauma is very rare. I am reporting a rare case with acute compartment syndrome for isolated medial compartment of foot after a traumatic sport event and proper management to prevent long term sequels.
