Abstract: Stress fractures are probably the most feared class of injuries amongst endurance athletes, especially runners, since they require lengthy rehabilitation periods and temporary but drastic modifications of their training regime. A detailed literature review is presented with the aim of highlighting the importance of athlete education as well as pre-participation screening in female athletes for one or more components of the triad.
