The anterior ligament of the lateral malleolus (anterior tibiofibular ligament, anterior inferior ligament) is a flat, triangular band of fibers, broader below than above, which extends obliquely downward and lateralward between the adjacent margins of the tibia and fibula, on the front aspect of the syndesmosis.

It is in relation, in front, with the Peronaeus tertius, the aponeurosis of the leg, and the integument; behind, with the interosseous ligament; and lies in contact with the cartilage covering the talus.
