Spontaneous Achilles tendon rupture in alkaptonuria

OB Mohammed, SA Idris, MHF Shalayel

Abstract


Spontaneous Achilles tendon ruptures are uncommon. We present a 46-year-old man with spontaneous Achilles tendon rupture due to ochronosis. To our knowledge, this has not been previously reported in Sudan literature. The tendon of the reported patient healed well after debridement and primary repairs.
