Ununited Anconeal Process (UAP) is defined as a disease of young dogs due to developmental abnormality in which there is a seperation of the anconeal process from the diaphysis of the ulna, leading to a front leg lameness and secondary osteoarthritis. A six -year-old German Shepherd dog was presented because of intermittent right front leg lameness. Diagnosis was made of ununited anconeal process with moderate osteoarthritis by radiographic examination. Surgical removal of ununited anconeal process and curettage of osteoarthritic growth within the elbow joint relieved significant clinical signs despite of size and age of the dog.
