Posterior elbow dislocation, ipsilateral Galeazzi fracture, and fracture of ulnar head is a very unusual injury pattern. In the literature, only eight such cases have been reported. Another such case of a 24-year-old woman is being reported by us. Elbow dislocation was reduced immediately under sedation in an emergency. Radius was fixed with a compression plate and distal ulna was fixed with a K wire. Elbow and wrist physiotherapy is started 3 weeks after immobilization.
