Peroneal tendon pathology is often found in patients complaining of lateral ankle pain and instability. Conditions encountered include tendinosis; tendinopathy; tenosynovitis; tears of the peroneus brevis, peroneus longus, and both tendons; subluxation and dislocation; and painful os peroneum syndrome. Injuries can be acute as a result of trauma or present as chronic problems, often in patients with predisposing structural components such as hindfoot varus, lateral ligamentous instability, an enlarged peroneal tubercle, and a symptomatic os peroneum. Treatment begins with nonoperative care, but when surgery is required, reported results and return to sport are in general very good.
