Read the abstract of the medical case
An unusual cause of shoulder
pain in an elderly woman: a case report
Stress fracture of the clavicle is
a rare entity. It can manifest itself with an atypical shoulder pain. The
clavicle is vulnerable to pathological fractures from several causes such as
neoplasm, infection and rarely metabolic bone disease.
We report a case of a bone
insufficiency fracture of the clavicle, in a 67-year-old Moroccan woman patient
with several risk factors of bone insufficiency including osteoporosis,
osteomalacia and primary hyperparathyroidism.
The diagnosis of bone
insufficiency-related fracture of the clavicle can be challenging. It should be
considered in the differential diagnosis of shoulder or clavicle pain.
