Description 10 p.
Abstract As a branch of pathology, palaeopathology searches in human or animal remains for marks of diseases, which occurred in ancient times. We present a foot from the Middle Ages showing changes caused by Sudeck’s dystrophy, presumably due to a fracture of the talus. In addition to its historical interest, this observation underlines the opportunities provided by osteoarticular palaeopathology alongside today’s pathology.
