Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pectoralis major ruptures have been increasing in incidence over the past decade, most likely attributable to physical activities, such as sports and weight training. Men account for the vast majority of cases with elderly women making up the remaining small percentage. In this case report, we describe a pectoralis major rupture in a middle-aged woman that has never been documented and provide a brief review of the literature.
