ND13.7/S92 Fracture of cuboid bone



A fracture of the cuboid bone is commonly caused by an external force such as a direct blow to the foot or an indirect force such as an ankle sprain. It can also be caused by a twisting or bending force.


Diagnosis of a cuboid fracture is done through physical examination and imaging tests. X-rays are the most common imaging test used and may show a fracture line or displacement of the cuboid bone.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that may need to be ruled out include ankle sprains, stress fractures, and tendonitis.


Treatment for a fracture of the cuboid bone may include rest, ice, elevation, and compression. A cast or splint may also be used to immobilize the area and allow time for healing. Surgery may be needed to reposition the bone or to stabilize the fracture with screws or plates.


The prognosis for a cuboid fracture depends on the severity of the injury. Most fractures heal with no long-term complications. However, surgery may be needed for more severe fractures. Physical therapy may also be necessary to restore full range of motion and strength to the affected area.
