Objective  To summarize the diagnosis and treatment of fibular fracture in ankle fracture. Methods Relevant literatures at home and abroad in recent years were widely consulted, and various types of fractures were discussed and summarized according to Danis-Weber classification. Results Conservative treatment is not an ideal treatment for type A avulsion fracture. The operation method should be determined according to the position and size of bone mass. For simple type B fracture, both conservative treatment and surgical treatment can achieve good results. When the position of type C fracture is high and does not affect the stability of ankle joint, it can be treated conservatively, while when the position is low and affects ankle joint, it needs surgical treatment. Conclusion First of all, whether the fracture is a stable fracture or not should be determined. Whether it is treated surgically or not, the purpose is to restore the tibiofibular syndesmosis under the ankle and restore the motor function of the ankle.
