    Abstract

    Closed injuries of extensor hallucis longus (EHL) tendon are uncommon and rarely reported. We present a patient who had an extensor hallucis longus tendon rupture which we believe to be related to the presence of a talar neck osteophyte. This was treated surgically with a satisfactory outcome.
