Isolated dislocation of the carpal scaphoid is a rare injury. The authors present a case of isolated scaphoid dislocation in a 40-year-old male that was undiagnosed for 2 months. The patient was treated by open reduction, Kirschner wire fixation, interosseous ligament repair using a suture anchor and Blatt's dorsal capsulodesis. At 6 years follow-up, his radiographs of wrist showed a normal carpal alignment with a scapholunate gap of 3 mm and no evidence of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the scaphoid. The present case is unique in the following aspects: (1) There was a delay of 2 months in treatment; (2) 6 years midterm follow-up was conducted; (3) suture anchor repair of the scapholunate ligament was done and Blatt's dorsal capsulodesis were performed.
