Posterolateral rotatory instability of elbow is an exceedingly uncommon entity, which results from injury to the lateral ligamentous complex. Failure of adequate healing of lateral collateral ligaments may necessitate its surgical repair or reconstruction. We describe here a boy 12 years of age who was initially treated as soft tissue injury and later presented with instability of the same elbow. He later required repair of lateral ulnar collateral ligament.
