Initial conventional x-ray of fore-arm with elbow and wrist joint showed osseous band at distal radio-ulnar joint (Fig.
These fractures are frequently articular injuries resulting in disruption of both the radiocarpal and distal radio-ulnar joint.
Close reduction and cast immobilization has been the mainstay of treatment of these fractures but malunion of fracture and subluxation /dislocation of distal radio-ulnar joint resulting in poor functional and cosmetic results is the usual outcome [11].
These articulate with each other at the proximal and distal radio-ulnar joints and also with the carpal bones consisting of eight small bones.
