The single bone forearm is a reconstructive procedure for the forearm when other options are not viable and sacrifice of one forearm bone; usually, the radius is necessary to save the forearm. The procedure sacrifices supination and pronation also but it gives a painless stable forearm. We are reporting a case of a 40-year-old female who had chronic osteomyelitis of the distal radius and was treated by single bone forearm surgery.
