Clavicle duplication is a rare anatomical variation of the scapular belt: only seven cases have been reported in the literature to date, and only one took note of the existence of a duplication of the acromioclavicular joint. Two hypotheses have been proposed to interpret this variation: genetic factors, or trauma occurred in the growth period. Clavicle duplication should not be mistaken for a quite frequent coracoclavicular joint widely described. The authors report the case of a left acromioclavicular joint duplication in a 51-year-old male patient presenting with left shoulder pain. This case was the first of literature providing 3D CT-scan images.
