Navicular dislocations are a rare injury and pose a challenge for the surgeon in the emergency department and the operating surgeon. We report a case of a 41-yearold male patient who presented with completely closed dislocation of navicular and was treated by open reduction and fixation of the naviculocuneiform and calcaneocuboid joints. At 12 months follow up, the patient had no deficits in activities of daily living.
