Fracture of diaphyseal forearm bones is common, while the elbow dislocation is a rare injury in the pediatric age group. Both injuries are widely reported in isolation or with various associated injuries. The concomitant association of both of these injuries even in adults is only described in the literature as sporadic case reports. The simultaneous presence of both of these injuries in children is even rarer. Here, we present a case of a 9-year-old child with posterior elbow dislocation and ipsilateral diaphyseal fracture of both bones of forearm that was appropriately managed with good outcome. Only one case has been reported younger than ours as per the literature search by authors regarding similar cases.
