Avulsion fractures of tuberositas calcanei are rarely seen fractures which usually occur after an indirect trauma. Osteoporosis and diabetes mellitus are the risk factors for fractures. These are the fractures which should be treated by early surgical intervention due to possible scar problems. In this article, we present a 51-year-old male case without any risk factor who underwent surgical treatment due to avulsion fracture and screw fixation.
