Introduction: Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is one of the most common, problems of the foot and ankle. Tenosynovitis of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) is an often unrecognized form of PTT dysfunction. Case: A 54-year-old woman presented with left ankle pain that began while morning walk three days prior. She noted that the left ankle hurt with even light touch and the pain was unrelieved with sodium diclofenac. She denied any history of trauma. She was seen in the outpatient clinic for this condition. On examination, a three centimeter area of pain was found posterior to the medial malleolus and parallel to the PTT. She also had a stage I flat foot and mild soft tissue swelling around medial malleolus region on her radiograph examination. Ultrasound examination was done with the result of anechoic fluid visible in the peritendinous space around the PTT. The patient received diagnosis of PTT tenosynovitis, with the foot and ankle disability index (FADI) score was 58.7. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection was done twice with an interlude of two weeks. The pain subsided and the following FADI score was 84.6. Outcome: Patient showed improvement in her left ankle PTT tenosynovitis after two PRP injection. Conclusion: This case report highlights the efficacy of PRP as a modality in managing PTT tenosynovitis.
