The isolated trochlea fracture is a rare condition that has been previously reported in different settings and times. However, there is still a lack of data regarding the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Hence, we sought to clarify various aspects of isolated trochlea fracture. The case presented was a young man referred to our hospital following a high-energy motor-car accident. The diagnosis was made via anteroposterior and lateral X-ray and with 3-dimensional computed tomography. Following diagnosis, open reduction and internal fixation with medial approach were selected for the patient. Finally, the patient’s follow-up revealed that the range of motion of the affected elbow reached its normal range six months after the operation.
