Author(s): Sudarsana Gopalan N, Harshavardhana V and Mallinath Gidaganti
Abstract: 
Stress fractures are usually a rare incidence, but if it occurs, its more common in the lower limbs. Upper limb stress fractures are comparatively quite rare, wherein clavicular stress fractures are particularly uncommon. There have been a very few reported cases of clavicle stress fractures, and the cases have been reported in patients with nervous tics, post radical neck dissection and rarely due to sports.
We report a case of clavicle stress fracture of a 55-year old female, who has been suffering from frozen shoulder.
