Introduction: Complete dislocation of the tarsal navicular without fracture is an uncommon injury. The rarity of this injury can be attributed to the rigid bony and ligamentous support surrounding the navicular, which usually undergoes fracture and dislocation rather than the pure dislocation of the navicular.
Case presentation: This manuscript reports a case with isolated navicular dislocation following a fall and successful treatment via open reduction and fixation with K-wire.
Conclusion: Although pure navicular dislocation is uncommon, it should be considered in patients with foot trauma, and treatment decreases complications.
