Abstract

Isolated fracture dislocation of navicular bone is rare. It is due to a plantar flexion compressive injury, which crushes the bone. Sometimes it may displace a part of the fractured bone from the naviculocuneiform and the talonavicular joints. We present a case report of a 37 year old male who presented with isolated fracture dislocation of navicular. Open reduction and Internal Fixation was done on the dorsal surface using Navicular plate and screws. There is always a possibility of ischaemic necrosis and post-traumatic arthritis in such cases.
