Single bone forearmfractures are usually associated with dislocation of one radio-ulnar joint.
Theassociation of ulnar fractures with dislocation of proximal radio-ulnar jointand radius fractures with distal radio-ulnar joint is well described.Classically they are better known as Monteggia and Galeazzi fracturedislocations respectively.
These peculiar presentations are attributed to intricaterelationship of the forearm bones joined together as a unit by two radio-ulnarjoints at proximal and distal ends and the interosseous membrane in the middlepart.
However, simultaneous dislocation of the both radio-ulnar jointsassociated with fracture of single bone is a very rare event.
Literature searchdoes not reveal a single case of such type.
We are presenting here a case offracture shaft of radius associated with dislocation of both proximal anddistal radio-ulnar joints.
The patient was managed by open reduction andfixation of the radius by a compression plate and the dislocations were reducedby closed method and stabilized with small K wires.
