ABSTRACT

Dislocation of the carpal bones is a rare occurrence. A review of the literature shows that only very few cases of dislocation of the carpal bones have been reported. Inquiry among my orthopedic colleagues revealed that many of them had not seen a single case, while others had seen one or at most two cases during their entire experience. Fracture of the scaphoid, however, has been seen frequently, and there are a fairly large number of cases reported.

The two cases described below are reported, first, because of the rarity of the condition, and secondly, because a good functional result was obtained in the one case by operative removal of the dislocated bones, and in the other case by conservative treatment alone.
