Fractures of distal ulna are often associated with fracture distal radius. Isolated intra-articular fractures of ulnar head have very rarely been reported in the literature. Displaced intra-articular fractures of ulna head should be treated properly so that the distal radio ulnar joint congruence is maintained. I am reporting a case of malunited isolated intra-articular fracture of ulnar head in young girl which was treated by open reduction and internal fixation. Logan and Lindau in their review of literature and recommendations for treatment of distal ulna fractures in adults found only few case reports. All those reported cases were treated soon after the injury. This case has been presented not only for its rarity but also to recognize the importance of managing the intra-articular fractures properly even in distal ulna.
