Divergent dislocations of the humeroradial, humero-ulnar, and proximal radio-ulnar joints are rare, the transverse type being so rare as to be a surgical curiosity. Only two cases have been reported in the literature, neither with roentgenograms or follow-up examinations. Reduction was obtained by closed methods in both patients. Now a case of a 6 yr old boy is presented.
