Haglund's syndrome is a group of symptoms: Haglund deformity (which is an exostosis of the posterior calcaneal tuberosity) in combination with retrocalcaneal bursitis.[1] It is often accompanied by Achilles tendinitis.

Haglund deformity typically presents with a prominent bump on the upper posterior calcaneus; generally, surgical removal of the deformity does not provide any clear benefit.
