    Introduction: Bennett’s fracture-dislocation is an intraarticular injury of the first metacorpal, usually treated by closed(non-surgical) methods. Fractures of the trapezium are among the rare wrist injuries. Simultaneous occurrence of these two injuries is a very rare entity. Case Report: A young man who had fallen down a motorcycle was referred with right Bennett’s fracture -dislocation and comminuted trapezium fracture. Closed methods were applied with relative success. Conclusion: Open surgery seems to be a more appropriate choice for trapezium fractures.
