Özet

Condensing osteitis of the clavicle is a rarely seen pathology since its first description in 1974. Although mechanical stress is claimed for aetiology, but remains a dilemma for physicians. The intermittent or steady pain is variable in intensity and generally localised at the medial end of the involved clavicle, supraclavicular fossa, ipsilateral anterior thorax and shoulder.
