Abstract

Ewing’s sarcoma rarely arises from clavicle. Total claviculectomy is a generally accepted method of treatment with good functional outcome. We report a case of a 15 year male patient diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma clavicle treated with total claviculectomy. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the functional and oncological outcome after total resection of clavicle. This patient had full range of motion of the shoulder joint without any deficit. Thus, total claviculectomy can be considered as procedure in primary clavicular malignancy.

Keywords: Total claviculectomy, Functional outcome, Ewing’s sarcoma.
