Abstract: Traumatic sternoclavicular joint dislocations are uncommon, accounting for just 1% of all documented upper limb dislocations, despite the fact that upper limb dislocations are very common literature offers only a handful of documented instances of such dislocations. Among them, anterior dislocations are more frequently observed than posterior dislocations, owing to the robust ligamentous support in this area. We describe the case of a 35-year-old male patient who had isolated anterior sternoclavicular dislocation and a successful reduction procedure used on him. The rarity of such cases is emphasized by the satisfactory outcomes presented in our report.
