Abstract: Subtalar joint dislocations are a relatively rare injury accounting for not more than 1% of traumatic dislocations. A 40-year-old male presented with pain and swelling of the left ankle and foot after 6 hours of a road traffic accident. Clinical examination and radiography revealed subtalar, talonavicular joint dislocation and fracture calcaneum. Open reduction and k-wire fixation was done. After 6 months of follow-up, foot was painless and stable with normal range of motion.
