  an 11 yr old boy jumped of a 10ft wall 2 days ago. He had some pain in his foot following this but was able to walk. Since then he has had incr pain in his right foot with walking but but no pain at rest. He has also noticed some crunching in this foot. The foot appears normal with exception of suffusion on the plantar surface. Passive motion on the second toe and passive dorsiflexion of foot produces pain in the middle of the foot. Most probable dx

a= fracture of second metatarsal
b=stress fracture of second metatarsal
c= tenosynovitis of toe flexors
d=MTP joint dislocation
e=hematoma in middle plantar surface
