ABSTRACT
Galeazzi fractures are not uncommon. They frequently result from falls with forced hyperpronation of the forearm. They are potentially unstable because of certain destabilizing factors at the wrist. Early recognition is essential, as is early operative fixation of the radius in adults. This paper reviews the English language literature and current knowledge of Galeazzi fractures in adults.
