Abstract

Osteitis condensans of the clavicle is a rare condition characterized by pain in the shoulder and often limitation of motion of the shoulder. The medical history and results of the physical examination, laboratory data, and radiographic studies (including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging), often establish the diagnosis. Patients who have slight or no pain usually require no treatment. Varying results have been reported for many different methods of treatment, including surgical excision, chemotherapy, antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, radiation, local corticosteroid injection, and physical therapy. A typical case report and the differential diagnosis for condensing osteitis of the clavicle are presented.
