Volar dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint is a rare injury which is commonly missed in emergency departments. A detailed history, careful physical examination, proper radiographic imaging along with a high index of suspicion is required to diagnose these injuries. We report a case of a 33 year-old man who sustained an acute, volar dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint associated ulnar styloid fracture and highlight the important clinical and radiological features, which can help in timely recognition.

Key words: distal radioulnar joint, dislocation, styloid fracture
