Introduction: Fracture dislocation of anatomical neck of humerus is an extremly rare fracture. So, the best
treatment for it and long term results are not well established. It is our duty to report each case of it to make material
for a greater study.
Material and method: A 27 years old man who is a victim of car accident is presented with shoulder and pelvic
pain. In X- ray, there was a hollow glenoid and in CT scan, the fractured anatomical head is rotated and angulated
posterior to glenoid (Figure 1). It was treated with hemiarthroplasty of shoulder.
Results: By deltopectoral approach, we can remove head fragment and because there was no enough bone in
subchondral region, we didn’t fix it and exchange it with cemented hemiarthroplasty of involved shoulder.
Discussion: Because of complete dislocation of anatomical head of humerus and no soft tissue attachment to
it, avascular necrosis of head of humerus can be highly anticipated. So, we choose hemiarthroplasty for him and we
think because tuberosities are not detached, function will be good.
