Reports of coexisting avascular necrosis of more than one carpal bone are rare. We report coexisting avascular necrosis of the scaphoid and lunate in a 56-year-old woman with no history of using steroids or injury. We treated her with a radioscapholunate fusion with two angled 2.4 mm distal radius plates to stabilise the locking plate. At her 12-month follow up there was no evidence of non-union.
