Abstract

Congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle is a rare condition. Bilateral involvement is extremely rare: only seven cases have been reported in the literature. Although the anatomy of the thoracic outlet can be markedly altered by the hypermobility of the shoulder and although few cases with mild symptoms suggesting brachial plexus impairment have been reported, the neurological status of the brachial plexus in congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle has not been well assessed. We report a case of bilateral congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle in which clinical, neurophysiological and radiological evaluations were performed.
