Haglund syndrome is a cause of posterior heel pain and occurs commonly in adolescent girls who wear high heels with restrictive heel counters and may occur in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Is characterized clinically by thickening of the soft tissues at the Achilles tendon insertion or a painful “pump bump” and retrocalcaneal bursitis, Achilles tendinitis, and a prominent posterosuperior calcaneal border or bursal projection. We report a case of a 59 years-old woman with bilateral Haglund syndrome which did not needed surgical treatment, being the conservative treatment enough to improve the patient’s quality of life.
