Primary subacute osteomyelitis of the talus is very rare in healthy children, and the diagnosis can be delayed or even missed, because of its uncommon presentation. Only a few cases of primary subacute osteomyelitis of the talus have been reported in the literature. In this article, we report a case of primary subacute osteomyelitis of the talus in a child and describe its symptoms, signs, radiographic appearance, and the outcome of the surgical management along with a short course of antibiotics coverage. We present this rare case report and its management to increase the awareness for the possibility of this pathology, and to avoid misdiagnosis.
