Management of atrophic non union of forearm bones is a challenging task. Various methods of treatment available in the literature are cortical tibial graft (Boyd), ulnar segment graft (Miller and Phalen), iliac crest graft (Spira), cancellous insert graft (Nicoll), vascularized fibular graft (Jupiter), and bone transport by ring fixator (Tesworth). We here report a case of infected non union of radius managed with modified Nicollâ€™s method. Here, intra medullary nailing is preferred over plating which was originally described by Nicoll. At two years follow up, the patient is symptom free and is able to carry out his daily activities with ease.
