Laceration with foreign body of ankle or foot can occur due to a sharp object like knife, glass, or any other sharp foreign object causing a deep cut in the ankle or foot area.
The diagnosis of laceration with foreign body of ankle or foot is typically done with physical examination, X-rays and other imaging studies.
