CLINICAL:Pain and swelling in the right foot, peroneal tendon tear.

FINDINGS: Contours of marrow signal patterns of the regional bones are within normal range treating there is increased T2 signal within the soft tissues at the lateral margin of the cuboid bone. A small effusion is noted within the peroneal tendon sheath. There is a 3mm slight separation of the distal tip of the peroneus longus tendon from the lateral margin of the cuboid bone, consistent with an avulsion. There is no sign of cuboid fracture. The fifth metatarsal base appears intact. The calcaneus is also normal in appearance.

IMPRESSION: Findings consistent with an avulsion of the peroneus longus tendon from the insertion on the lateral aspect of cuboid bone.
