It is described a case, never reported in Literature, of a patient presenting two non-unions located on the fifth metatarsal bone of the left foot. The two pseudoarthrosis, localized on a fracture of the metatarsal bone and on a Jones’ fracture were treated successfully with a Herbert screw. A five years later follow-up showed an excellent outcome, with a full return to sport activities. A review of the Literature is provided.
