Haglund's syndrome, a common cause of pain in the posterior heel, consists of a painful swelling of the local soft tissues and prominence of the calcaneal bursal projection. The condition is caused by compression of the distal Achilles tendon and surrounding soft tissues between the os calsis and the posterior shoe counter. In this paper a patient with Haglund's syndrome is reported and the literature on Haglund's disease is reviewed.
