Condensing osteitis of the clavicle is a rare and benign idiopathic entity that is probably degenerative or mechanical in etiology. It is usually seen in women of late child-bearing age as a variably painful and tender swelling over the medial end of the clavicle. Radiographs show sclerosis and slight expansion of the medial one-third of the clavicle.[1]
