Abstract
tudy design: Case report. Objective: To report a rare case of voluntary scapulothoracic dislocation and its treatment. Background data: Scapulothoracic dissociation is a rare condition. We report a case of a teenager who could volun- tarily dislocate her scapulae. Results: The patient was treated surgically by fixating her scapula to the contralateral transverse process and carrying out associated muscle plication. Now, after a 12-year follow-up, the patient is asymptomatic. Conclusions: Fixation of the scapula to the contralateral transverse process and plication of associated muscles is a valid treatment for this condition.
