Atraumatic retrosternal dislocation of the clavicle is an exceedingly rare event and three out of four previously reported cases lack any radiological evidence. We report the case of a 30-year-old male patient who presented an atraumatic retrosternal dislocation of the clavicle without a history of previous injury and underlying pathology. The diagnosis was delayed and established by a CT scan ten days after and initial presentation of the symptoms. A successful, stable, closed reduction under general anaesthesia was performed ten days after the initial presentation, having a cardiothoracic surgeon immediately available. There was no recurrence and the patient remains asymptomatic 18 months later.
