Abstract: The authors report 2 cases of divergent fracture-dislocation of the ankle. They remind diagnostic problems and show the ease of diagnosis. The literature review confirms that this is a rare lesion. Pathological stages are now well codified. After reduction, the evolution is favourable rule. A year back, the results are satisfactory and 2 patients had no pain, with resumption of their daily activity.
