Abstract: 

Elbow dislocation, though not a rare injury has been only occasionally reported to occur bilaterally. An extremely rare case of upper extremity trauma is reported in which bilateral simultaneous posterior elbow dislocation associated with bilateral radial neck fractures had occurred. To the best of our knowledge, this hasn't been reported previously. Although radial head excision has been reported to be associated with good outcome in cases of elbow dislocations with fracture of radial neck, the trend has been toward preservation of the head and it seems that this is a more logical approach.
