Congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle (CPC) is a rare malformation of unknown etiology. Not many cases are reported in the literature so far. The child is usually asymptomatic and presents with a swelling in the midportion of the clavicle. The diagnosis can be confirmed by X-rays. Surgical treatment is indicated in symptomatic patients or those with major deformity. We present a case of the right side CPC in a 16-year-old female patient managed surgically in our hospital. Patients with CPC usually present early due to cosmetic deformity, but our patient presented quite late due to negligence. Surgical treatment was performed, with resection of fibrous pseudoarthrosis, internal fixation with locking compression plate, and iliac bone graft. CPC should be included in the differential diagnosis of clavicle abnormalities in children. Good results can be achieved with surgical techniques in patients with indication.
