A 35-year-old nurse, with no significant medical history and no recollection of foot trauma, was persistently experiencing left heel pain worsened by walking. An ankle and foot plain radiograph showed no abnormality. After 6 months, a three-phase radionuclide bone scan was obtained that showed markedly increased tracer uptake in all three phases in the region of the left calcaneus. An MRI of the left foot showed a 'bone bruise' involving the anterior aspect of the calcaneus.
