Irreducible fracture dislocation of the ankle associated with comminuted displaced fracture of posterior malleolus is rare. Locked posterior malleolar fragments interfere with reduction of fibula or talus in ankle fractures. Prompt recognition and appropriate surgical approaches are necessary to achieve anatomical reduction of the ankle fractures.
