Abstract

Though clavicle fractures are routinely seen in clinical practice, rarely do we encounter segmental fractures. This unusual pattern of fracture in clavicle has been seldom reported previously. We present a case of segmental fracture of the left clavicle fracture in a 64year old who was treated successfully. A detailed literature review has been presented too.
