Bottom Line: 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.

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.

Mentions: The patient was progressing satisfactorily at 6 months when he was lost to follow-up. Five years after the surgery the patient returned to the hospital with a complaint of low-back pain. His wrist was radiographed after obtaining consent. Both the clinical and radiographic examinations revealed no abnormality. The active range of motion of the wrist was 135° in the flexion extension arc (flexion 0°–70°, extension 0°–65°) 65° in radioulnar deviation (0°–36° radial deviation and 0°–29° ulnar deviation) and 110° of pronation supination (0°–55° pronation and 0°–55° supination). The passive range of motion as measured by the examiner was the same. The grip strength of the patient was 29 kg compared to the 32 kg on the opposite side as measured on the dynamometer (Fig. 3).
