Abstract

We report a very rare association of a physeal fracture of the medial clavicular growth plate with a fracture of the adjacent clavicle in a 14-year-old boy who fell on his shoulder while playing football. Clinical, radiographic and computed tomographic (with three-dimensional reconstruction) features are described. Open reduction, internal fixation of the lateral fracture (with a reconstructive plate) and suture of the periosteum were performed.
