Abstract

We report a rare case of Galeazzi fracture-dislocation with an irreducible distal radioulnar joint. The cause of the irreducibility was entrapment of a fragment avulsed from the fovea of the ulna. The patient was successfully treated with open reduction and internal fixation of the radius, ulnar styloid process and avulsed fracture at the fovea of the ulna.
