We present a case of ipsilateral dislocation of the knee, ankle and midfoot. No previous report of this combination of injuries was found in a review of the literature. In spite of the type of injury, no neurovascular compromise or complications turned up. Closed reduction of the dislocations was possible and performed under general anaesthesia. At the last examination, 4 years after injury, the alignment of the joints was preserved, and the range of motion of the three joints resembled that of the opposite side. Without fractures, the closed reduction and tempory immobilisation of all the affected joints produced a remarkably good result.
