This paper reports an isolated dorsal fracture-dislocation of the scaphoid at its waist with the proximal fragment dislocated dorsally. Such a fracture-dislocation is extremely rare. We believe the pathomechanics of this injury to have been a flexion and radial deviation with an axial force on the wrist.
