Elbow dislocation in children is a rare injury and the anterior dislocation is a rarer variant. These may at times be associated with fractures of condyles or epicondyles of the distal humerus among others. An anterior elbow dislocation along with concomitant fracture of the displaced lateral condyle is a very rare injury, which was successfully managed and is described here with relevant details. Anterior elbow dislocation in a 7-year-old child was reduced, and the lateral condyle fracture was managed by open reduction and K-wire fixation. Good functional outcome was noted despite radiological irregularity over the capitellum with child performing all activities of daily living.
