Medial subtalar dislocations following sport’s trauma are infrequent and rarely reported in the literature. They have an excellent prognosis with early reduction. We report the observation of a pure subtalar dislocation closed in a young athlete of 28 years, occurring following a sports accident (handball) with medial displacement. The reduction was performed urgently under general anesthesia. Restraint with a cast boot was performed for six weeks, followed by rehabilitation. The functional results were excellent, with no signs of instability or osteoarthritis.

Post-surgery pubic symphysis is a rare condition that is difficult to diagnose. It must be mentioned in front of any pubic pain associated with a fever. The biological assessment is often disturbing but not specific. The MRI most often allows the diagnosis to be made and guides the sample to be taken which allows the antibiotic therapy to be adapted. The treatment is based on a long-term combination of antibiotics, the evolution is most often favourable. We report here the case of pubic symphysitis complicating a radical prostatectomy in our centre.

A diabetic foot is any pathology that results directly from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and/or sensory neuropathy that may affect the feet in diabetes mellitus; It presents as a long standing or rather chronic complication of diabetes mellitus. Diabetic foot syndrome encompasses a whole variety of diabetic foot pathological manifestations such as infection, Diabetic foot ulcer and neuropathic osteoartropathy [1, 2]. This study was conducted comprising of 25 patients of Diabetic foot in the Department of Surgery at tertiary care centre. Management of diabetic ulcers frequently involves the use of an empiric antibiotic. The wound severity and local antimicrobial susceptibility pattern often determine the selection of empiric treatment.
