We report the case of a 73 year old patient with a COPD. A severe exazerbation was treated with glucocorticoids and Quinolones. A few days later both ankles were tender and painful. Ultrasound examination showed bilateral Achilles tendon ruptures. Diagnostics, etiology and therapeutic options are discussed.
