In each issue, JUCM will challenge your diagnostic acumen with a glimpse of x-rays, electrocardiograms, and photographs of dermatologic conditions that real urgent care patients have presented with.

If you would like to submit a case for consideration, please e-mail the relevant materials and presenting information to [email protected]

The patient is a 42-year-old who presents to urgent care after “twisting” her left foot.
The patient is able to bear weight on the foot, though it is painful.

View the image taken (Figure 1) and consider what your diagnosis and next steps would be.

Resolution of the case is described on the next page.

Clinical Challenge: July/August, 2010
