Elbow dislocation associated with ipsilateral Galeazzi fracture is a rare pattern of injury. Only seven cases were reported in the literature. We reported another case in a 42 years old man. Closed reduction of the dislocated elbow joint was immediately performed under sedation. Because the patient did not want surgery for radius, it was decided to manage the fracture conservatively. The lack of clinical improvement motivated operative treatment for Galeazzi fracture 56 days after injury. We have discussed the treatment option and the result obtained. The prognosis of this associated injury is related to the DRUJ dislocation, which should not be misdiagnosed.
