We report a rare case of irreducible chronic palmar dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). This case showed that the dislocated ulnar head was impacted to the palmar cortex of the radius probably due to the dynamic force of the pronator quadratus muscle. Re-attachment of the ulnar styloid and partial resection of the ulnar head were necessary to make the reduction of the DRUJ possible. The continuity of the radioulnar ligament to the ulnar head was restored and the stability of DRUJ was maintained after reduction.
