Dislocation of the scapula between the ribs and into the thoracic cage is a very rare event. Scapulothoracic dissociation though has been reported, usually occurs after a severe injury and is often associated with other serious injuries like brachial plexus or chest injury, etc. Ainscow has described a rare type that may occur due to slight violence with a pre-existing condition. Cases of isolated scapular dislocation after minor trauma have not been reported frequently in the literature. It is a distinct clinical entity and needs to be differentiated from other similar conditions. Here, we present a case of painless scapular dislocation associated with trivial trauma followed by spontaneous reduction in a 10 years old girl. The patient had a recurrence of the dislocation before presenting to us. But she did not have any pre-existing condition for scapular dislocation.
