dislocation is a particular entity, infrequent, representing only 0.2% of all dislocationsas evidenced by the scarcity of publications, which mainly affects young
patients, and most often the result of violent trauma. We reported a case of a 35-year-old male patient who sustained dorsal
radiocarpal dislocation after a fall from a high place, with fracture of the
radial and ulnar styloid process in both wrists, associated to a tiered trauma
of the right upperlimb. He was treated with closed reduction and immobilized by
cast for the bilateral radiocarpal dislocation, and treated surgically for the
tiered trauma of the upperlimb. The evaluation at 3 months showed favorable
results. This case is one of the few similar cases reported because it is an uncommon
pathology and it is even less frequent because the injury involves both wrists
and the upperlimb.
