Calcaneal spurs are bony outgrowths of the calcaneus that are common findings on radiographic examination of the foot and ankle. Calcaneal spurs can develop on the plantar tuberosity and extend across the whole width of the calcaneus. Calcaneal spurs are a frequent cause of plantar heel pain, but can be incidentally detected in asymptomatic patients. Fracture of the calcaneal spur is very rare. We report on a 32-year-old woman who presented with heel pain after accidentally slipping and landing on her right heel. Radiograph of her foot showed a fractured calcaneal spur. She was successfully treated with a conservative approach.
