The problem of large defect or gap in one of the forearm bones is rare, but not uncommon, where most of the radius except the lower end may be missing, or most of the ulna except the upper end is absent or deformed. If a child of this defect remains uncorrected for a long period, secondary deformities will develop. Isolated congenital pseudoarthrosis of the ulna is a rare entity. We present such a case of a 12-year-old boy, who was referred to us for deformity of his right forearm (since birth), and pain on the right hand with exertion. The examination and investigation confirmed the diagnosis of congenital pseudoarthrosis of the ulna, which was associated with neurofibromatosis and was treated by the creation of one bone forearm as a salvage procedure.
