Tarsal stress fracture is a common condition in sports medicine and its management has improved greatly since the 1920s. However, certain tarsal stress fractures continue to be diagnosed late and cause prolonged down time for athletes. This paper reviews reports of the less common tarsal stress fractures in athletes and in military populations. It aims to provide guidance to clinicians by answering relative questions.
