: 3. Point tenderness at the tubercle of the 5th metatarsal may signal avulsion of the tendons of peroneus longus tendon and peroneus tertius.
Peroneus longus does not attach to MT5 so avulsion of the tendon would not cause point tenderness at the tubercle of MT5
: 6. Decrease sensation between the web of the 2nd and 3rd toe paired with
decreased dorsalis pedis pulse is suggestive of lateral compartment syndrome.
Lateral compartment syndrome would affect the superficial peroneal n and decrease sensation between all the toes except 1 and 2 since that space is supplied by the deep fibular n. Since the lateral compartment is supplied by perforating arteries of the peroneal a there would not be a decrease in the dorsalis pedis pulse.
