Abstract

The management of perilunate dislocations diagnosed later than three months continue to elicit debate with literature being scarce. We report a 22-year-old male with transscaphoid perilunate dislocation who reported to our hospital 8 months after sustaining the injury. Open reduction was done along with bone grafting. Five years after the surgery the patient is symptom-free with an excellent range of motion.
