Haglund's syndrome is an inflammatory condition that could affect the area around your heel, where a small fluid-filled sac, called a bursa, allows the Achilles' tendon to slide smoothly over the bony ridge of your calcaneus (heel bone). When both the bursa and the tendon are inflamed, causing calcification to your heel bone, you could end up with a bony prominence called Haglund's deformity.
