Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the clavicle is a rare condition, which typically presents as an isolated anatomical variant.
Usually presents as a midclavicular swelling in the neonate or young child 1.
Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the clavicle is more common on the right, although it can be bilateral 2. The etiology is unknown but an intrauterine pathogenesis is favored over non-union of birth trauma.
