A 31-year-old male came to the hospital with ipsilateral radiocarpal fracture dislocation and elbow dislocation. Elbow was reduced immediately in the emergency, and the open reduction and internal fixation with plating were done for the radiocarpal fracture dislocation. The patient recovered with a good range of motion of both elbow and wrist. This combination of fracture is rare with the possible mechanisms being single impact due to the fall from a height on an outstretched hand or double impact on the elbow and the wrist.
