The interosseous membrane (IOM) of the leg is a component of the tibiofibular syndesmosis that serves an important role in stabilization, as well as transferring forces to the fibula during weight-bearing. We present two separate cases of acute traumatic rupture of the midportion of the interosseous membrane in high school soccer players with blunt trauma to the anterior shin with MRI and ultrasound confirmation.
