stress fracture of the 5th metatarsal

Stress fracture of the 5 metatarsal is the least common fracture type of the proximal 5metatarsal, with an avulsion fracture being the most common, followed by Jones fracture. Stress fractures typically occur within 1.5 cm of the metadiaphyseal junction, slightly distal to the site of a Jones fracture.
