Turf toe is a common injury of the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint in athletes which is the result of hyperdorsiflexion injury. While the term turf toe has been used to describe a variety of first MTP joint injuries, the term is now typically used in imaging to describe tearing or injury to the plantar plate complex. This review article will cover normal anatomy of the first MTP joint, mechanism of injury, typical imaging findings in normal individuals on MRI and ultrasound, as well as the most common patterns of injury.
