Dislocation of the radial head with fracture of the ipsilateral diaphysis is a very rare lesion, few cases have been reported in the literature.
We report a case of a 45-year-old patient admitted for management of a fracture of the humeral diaphysis associated with dislocation of the ipsilateral radial head, the mechanism of which was a hyperpronation of the forearm tense that the elbow was hyperflexion. The reduction was open-cast by a proximal anteropteral approach to the forearm. The evolution was favorable on a follow-up of 18 months.

Key words: the radial head, dislocation, radial diaphysis.
