Monteggia type fracture dislocations of the elbow are a common occurrence in children. Bado types I and III are the most common types comprising 70 and 23%, respectively, and type II injuries account only for 6%. We present an interesting case of Monteggia type II fracture dislocation in an 11-month-old child, which has not been described before in a child younger than 11 years of age. Any ulnar fracture, especially in a child, should be evaluated carefully. Closed reduction is the mainstay of treatment in Monteggia type II fracture dislocation in children.
