Abstract: Proximal humerus fractures are considered the most common of all humerus fractures, they constitute 5% of all bone fractures. However, bilateral proximal humerus fractures in patients younger than 65 years of age are rare to happen according to the literature. In this report, we present a 49 years old male, who was involved in a pedestrian accident, developed bilateral proximal humerus fractures, treated by two different surgical fixations “based on the type of fracture”. Bilateral proximal humerus fractures are rare presentation, and often found in older people. Therefore, Surgical option by Open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) is considered the most preferred option of treatment. Other options include prosthetic replacement or conservative treatment, which are ideal for certain types of fractures and people. Our aim of this study is to share the experience of our treatment plan, as well as to give an idea about the types of possible fracturs that can happen with this kind of rare presentation.
