Abstract

Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the clavicle is a rare entity that can be confused for a traumatic injury. We present 4 cases of congenital clavicular pseudoarthrosis and discuss its imaging findings that can help differentiate it from the more common clavicular facture. We also reviewed its epidemiology, embryology, and management based on available and most recent literature.
