Abstract: Monteggia fracture dislocations comprise about 5-10 % of all forearm fractures in adults and was first described in 1814. Since then there has been many descriptions of Monteggia equivalents. We present a case of 33 year old female with fracture of diaphysis of ulna with fracture shaft of radius proximal 1/3rd with posterior radial head dislocation managed by open reduction and internal fixation of both radius and ulna by LCDCP and screws with reduction of radial head and its functional outcome.
