Abstract

Background: Simultaneous Monteggia fracture dislocations and ipsilateral fracture of the Capitellum is an extremely rare injury in adults.

Materials and methods: A 43 years old male patient was presented with open grade I Monteggia fracture dislocation Bado type II with ipsilateral osteochondral fracture of the Capitellum, which was not apparent on initial radiographs. We describe the diagnosis and management of these extremely rare coexisting fractures.

Results and Conclusion: this case emphasizes the importance of exclusion of any associated ipsilateral Capitellar fracture in any case of Monteggia fracture dislocation. Careful clinical and radiological examination are essential for a satisfactory outcome in such complex injuries.
