Isolated acute distal radioulnar joint DRUJ dislocation is a rare injury Garrigues and Aldridge III in J Bone Joint Surg Am 89:1594–1597, 2007. Reports of isolated DRUJ luxations, volair or dorsal, are often case reports and rarely a series of cases Dameron Jr in Clin Orthop Relat Res 83:55–63, 1972. We present a case of an acute traumatic dorsal DRUJ dislocation treated with cast immobilization with recurrence of the dislocation after a new trauma some months later. At follow-up, 17 months after the first dislocation and 9 months after the second, he experienced no pain and had no restrictions in work or sports-related activities.
