German term or phrase: AK
"DS und Schwellung im Bereich des AK und der MT V Basis links."

could "AK" be "achilles ???"? this document is really short but the patient has a strain or sprain of his foot. the upper ankle was x-rayed. i hope this is helpful because there isn't really any other relevant information.

thanks:)

neutral  Stephen Sadie: Is "outer ankle" really a medical term?
4 mins
  -> it should be fine in this reporting context using shortened terminology. However, lateral ligament is definitely not a translation for Außenknöchel...

agree  Gisela Greenlee: lateral malleolus would be the appropriate medical term
