Isolated traumatic anterior radial head dislocation is extremely rare and very commonly missed injury. A 12-year-old male had a fall on outstretched hand with pronated forearm. He presented after 6 weeks with complaints of swelling around the antero-lateral aspect of right elbow joint with restriction of movements. The dislocation was treated with open reduction and trans-capitellar K wire fixation. There were no signs of recurrence at one year follow-up. Probability of radial head dislocations should always be kept in mind while dealing with such injuries. Early detection can alleviate the need for open reduction at a later stage.
