Unusual Presentation of Monteggia Variant with Distal Radius Fracture in Adult

Anil Kumar Y [2] | Siva Prasad Y | Biju R

Abstract: Multiple fractures of the upper limb are infrequent. Hereby we report a rare association of type IIC Monteggia fracture-dislocation with Mason type III radial head fracture with ipsilateral distal radius fracture in an adult patient. This case report also highlights the importance of basic proper clinical examination and radiographs include one joint above, one joint below the suspected fracture. Surgical management of this complex injury had a good functional outcome at one-year follow-up.

Keywords: Multiple fractures, Forearm fracture, Monteggia variant
