A 41-year-old man presented to the emergency department after crashing his dirt bike and sustaining bilateral subtalar fracture dislocations. The left talus underwent open reduction internal fixation. At his first postoperative visit, the patient was found to have bilateral peroneal tendon subluxation (PTS). This case report discusses the cause of PTS and the challenges associated with accurate identification and diagnosis of this injury. We review the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges associated with injury, the negative impact on clinical outcomes, and the association between PTS and hindfoot trauma.
