Calf muscle trauma commonly involves the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles. Plantaris muscle is a vestigial muscle coursing through the calf. Similar clinical features may be seen with injury to the plantaris muscle. It can also mimic other conditions like deep vein thrombosis, rupture of Baker's cyst, and tumors. MRI is helpful in identifying and characterizing it. We report two cases of ruptured plantaris muscle seen on MRI.
