Abstract

Calcaneal apophysitis (Sever’s disease), is the most frequent cause of the heel pain in growing children. The diagnosisis generally made with a typical history and clinical examination. Imaging modalities including radiography and magnetic resonance imaging can help establish the diagnosis. In this case we report imaging findings of an 11-year-old boy diagnosed as Sever’s disease.
