Fracture of the os peroneum is relatively rare, and a stress fracture of the os peroneum is even rarer. We report a case of stress fracture of the os peroneum in a 38-year-old laborer who had been working in a crouching position. X-rays showed a multipartite os peroneum. Bone scintigram showed uptake at the os peroneum. The histology of the excised os peroneum revealed various stages of fracture healing. Excision of the fractured os peroneum and reconstruction of the peroneus longus tendon by end-to-end suture resulted in an excellent outcome.
