Accompanied shoulder dislocation of the proximal humerus fracture associated with ipsilateral shaft fracture is a rare injury described in literature collection and whose treatment protocol is not clearly established. Here we present the case of 63 years old male who suffered a fall after slipping in a pool and presented a humeral shaft fracture associated with ipsilateral anterior glenohumeral dislocation and fracture of the proximal humerus in three fragments with involvement of the anatomical neck. The patient underwent a closed reduction first attempt with the help of two needle percutaneous. Axillary artery was injured so had to undergo a second time for another intervention in which we made open reduction and osteosynthesis by proximal humerus long plate and hemiarthroplasty.
