Answer

The histories for each type of peroneal tendon injury have subtle differences. The key is to have a clinical suspicion and to listen carefully to the patient.

Peroneal tendinitis

Symptoms of pain behind and distal to the lateral malleolus usually occur when the patient returns to activity after time off. Swelling and tenderness may also be present.
