We report the case of a 31-year-old male who presented with traumatic dislocation of both proximal and distal tibiofibular joints without fibular fracture. The patient underwent closed reduction of the proximal tibiofibular joint and surgical stabilization of the distal tibiofibular joint. An 18-month postoperative evaluation confirmed a very good clinical outcome after anatomic reduction. This type of trauma is very rare and, to our knowledge, has only been described 3 times previously. Furthermore, our surgical management was different from that used for the previous cases and proved to be satisfactory.

Level of Clinical Evidence: 4
