Abstract

Condensing osteitis of the clavicle (COC) is a rare disease characterized by sclerosis of the medial end of the clavicle. Brower was the first to coin this term in 1974. Since then many cases have been published in medical journals. All the reported cases are female patients (with the exception of one) in child bearing age. Left clavicle is reported to be predominately afflicted by COC. None of the case is reported from Middle East nor from Indian subcontinent. We report the following case of bilateral COC in young Indian female patient diagnosed in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
