Tendinopathies, most commonly affecting the Achilles tendon, are a possible side effect with the use of Fluoroquinolones. Tendinopathies may occur from two hours to six months upon starting a course of fluoroquinolones. This case study presents a patient who had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed peroneus longus tendon rupture with the presence of an os peroneum fracture after two courses of ciprofloxacin treatment, one course five months prior to the injury and the second course one month prior to the injury. Physicians and patients should monitor for tendon soreness and pain in the peroneus longus tendon in addition to the classically documented Achilles tendon following the use of fluoroquinolones. </span></p> 2022-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of the International Foot & Ankle Foundation https://internationalfootankle.org/journal/index.php/JIFAF/article/view/16 Cutaneous manifestations of tuberous sclerosis in the foot: A case study 2022-04-13T16:31:02+00:00 Molly Ichikawa molly.ichikawa@gmail.com Melinda Bowlby Gina AmicaTerra <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tuberous sclerosis is a neurocutaneous syndrome that can manifest in many different ways. One of the major criteria is the presence of periungual or subungual fibromas in the toes. This article presents two cases of recurrent periungual fibromas and multiple options for treatment. </span></p> 2022-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of the International Foot & Ankle Foundation https://internationalfootankle.org/journal/index.php/JIFAF/article/view/19 Tibial sesamoidectomy: Case series and review of literature 2022-05-12T03:16:32+00:00 Tzu Lu Lin llin1989@gmail.com Tracie Shaw tracieshaw305@gmail.com Evyn Mirasol Brandon Hawkins <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tibial sesamoidectomy is frequently the treatment of choice for different tibial sesamoid pathologies when non-surgical treatment fails. However, surgery is not without postoperative complications, such as hallux abducto valgus (HAV) deformity. Currently, there is a paucity of research regarding isolated tibial sesamoidectomy and its complications. The purpose of this paper is to present two cases of isolated tibial sesamoidectomy, a brief description of surgical technique, an anatomic and functional description of hallux sesamoids, and an updated literature review on isolated tibial sesamoidectomy. </span></p> 2022-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of the International Foot & Ankle Foundation
