Abstract: Inter-condylar fracture of the distal humerus is uncommon injuries and is difficult and challenging fracture for treatment. Restoration of the articular surface of distal humerus must be nearly perfect and sufficiently rigid to permit early mobilization of the elbow if the results is to be satisfactory. This was a prospective study of 20 cases of intercondylar fracture of distal humerus in adults admitted to medial trust hospital. In our series of 20 cases, there were 9 males and 11 females with average of 44.1 years. 9 cases were due to direct fall and 11 road traffic accident, with predominance of left side (11). Out of 20 cases 5 (25%) were of RR type II, 12 (60%) were of RR III and 3 (15%) were of RR IV.
