Galeazzi fractures represent approximately 3 to 6 percent of forearm fractures, whereas Monteggia fractures represent 1 to 2 percent. The combination of these injuries in the same extremity is an exceedingly rare occurrence. We report a case of ipsilateral combination of Galeazzi and Monteggia fractures in a ten-year-old patient. The patient was treated with closed reduction and internal fixation with Kirschner pins. The distal radioulnar and radiocapitellar joint relationships were restored and the fractures healed. The patient proceeded to obtain a satisfactory functional result three years later. Internal fixation is a safe method for such complex forearm fractures in older children and allows post-operative rehabilitation with the advantage of early mobilization.
