ABSTRACT
We present a case of pathological fracture of olecranon through a giant geode. Fracture was initially undisplaced and was treated conservatively. It later progressed to a transolecranon dislocation as a result of a pseudarthrosis at the fracture site. The patient presented 4 years later when she developed symptoms of ulnar nerve palsy. She was treated by a total elbow arthroplasty with ulnar nerve transposition. The current report highlights this unusual case and reviews the relevant literature.
