Kienbock's disease occurs as a complication in less than 1% of volar perilunate dislocations of the wrist. One such case is reported here. The choice of open or closed treatment appears not to affect the incidence of avascular necrosis in this injury. Thus it is concluded that treatment should be dictated by the associated fractures or evidence of persistent scapholunate dissociation.
