Subject: Clavicular - rib synostosis

From: Charles M. Blitzer

CT cuts of 45yo male with multiple sclerosis 1 yr s/p MC Crash.

Pt complains of restricted shoulder ROM and pain w/ ROM.

I beleive he has a synostosis clavicle to first rib. Have others seen this problem? Is it likely to be symptomatic?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Consider sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis.
