Severe sprain: Most, not all avulsion fractures around the ankle are treated in a manner very similar to a severe ankle sprain. The ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle together can tear in the middle of the ligament, or they can pull off a small piece of bone where the ligament typically attaches to that bone. That is the most common cause of and avulsion fracture.
