Posterior sternoclavicular joint disruptions are rare, and a concomitant fracture is even less common in the pediatric population. This case report concerns a posterior sternoclavicular joint disruption and ipsilateral medial clavicle fracture in a 9-year-old male hockey player. We describe the various imaging modalities that may be necessary for this injury, the complications to be considered in dealing with this injury as well as an internal fixation technique using FiberWire.
