Abstract

A number of patients continue to experience prolonged pain, swelling, instability and disability after a lateral ankle sprain which is sufficient to limit the activity. There are several conditions which are misdiagnosed as chronic lateral ligament injury. In this review we highlight the common conditions that can mimic chronic lateral ligament injury and can cause persistent ankle pain after lateral ankle sprain. An outline to diagnose and treat these pathologies is also discussed, to resolve the diagnostic and treatment dilemma in most of the patients, but this problem still remains unresolved in a few patients.
