Fracture at the junction of lower and middle third of radius with dislocation of inferior radioulnar joint or Galeazzi’s fracture dislocation is a rare injury. Although Astley Cooper was the first to recognize this lesion in 1822, yet it is named after Riccardo Galeazzi who in 1934 described the importance of this injury while report in his experiences of 18 such cases. The incidence of complications e.g. malunion, delayed union, non-union, limitation of pronation and supination of hand and impairment of its function is high, because quite often the full nature of injury is not fully appreciated initially. The main aim of this report is to evaluate the results of various methods of treatment in this rare unstable fracture and to have some guide line for proper management of these cases.
