Background: Monteggia fracture-dislocation is a rare entity in adults with an incidence of less than 1%. However, a combination of fracture shaft humerus with distal intraarticular extension along with monteggia fracture-dislocation in an ipsilateral upper limb is very hard to find and manage, owing to its rare presentation. Materials and Methods: In this report, we detailed the surgical management of comminuted fracture(splinter) of shaft humerus with intercondylar extension AO C2 with typeII monteggia fracture-dislocation with the usage of proper implants in a 25year old male with a 3 year follow-up. Result: It shows that the fracture united well at the appropriate period and the elbow range of movements was satisfactorily ranging from 20° to 130° with no limitation in supination and pronation. Conclusion: Such complex elbow injuries are difficult to find in the literature. This study addresses the proper surgical management in terms of approach and usage of appropriate implants to improve the long-term functional outcome when dealing with such injuries.
