Congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle is a rare condition, which rarely produces functional disabilities except for cosmetic problems. Surgical treatment involves autogenous iliac bone grafts and internal fixation. Few studies have reported long-term results of surgical treatment or morphological changes of the clavicle. We report a patient with a congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle, who demonstrated a near normal radiographic appearance of the clavicle and an excellent result 22 years after the operation performed at 4 years of age.
