Freiberg's Infraction in a Geriatric Patient - A Case Report

Daniel Pollack, DPM, FACFAS*

Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, Queens, New York, USA


Freiberg's infraction is characterized by pain in the forefoot caused by osteonecrosis, and most commonly found in adolescent females. I present here a case report of a 78-year-old female with Freiberg's infraction of the second metatarsal head in order to focus on a rare cause of foot pain among geriatric patients and its management.
