In this case report, we present a young adult presenting with a traumatic elbow dislocation with an entrapped osteochondral fragment. An initial diagnosis of traumatic elbow dislocation with entrapped medial epicondyle was made but later on it was found to be an osteochondral fragment detached from the olecranon fragment. The patient required surgical intervention to restore a congruent and stable elbow joint. This case report is novel as the elbow dislocation with osteochondral fragment entrapment is occurring in an adult; at the same time, the fragment belongs to the olecranon, and cases of which have not been reported yet.
