Haglund’s Syndrome or Osseous ProtuberanceHaglund’s Syndrome is a pathology characterised by the presence of an exostosis in the Achilles Tendon insertion area, at the back of the heel.
The protuberance alters the morphology of the calcaneus and causes the following symptoms:
- Bony bump on the heel, increasing the surface area of the soft parts.
- Focal pain in the heel insertion.
- Painful dorsoflexion of the foot, caused by the friction between the tendon and bone.
- Reddening and chafing of the part in contact with the shoe.
