The chest radiograph reveals bilateral clavicular fractures with the development of bone callus.
Additionally, there is a humeral fracture of the left proximal metaphysis.
Unilateral fracture of the clavicle is one of the commonest birth injuries of the neonate, however bilateral clavicular fractures and humeral fracture are very rare.
The first radiograph was performed 14 days after birth, which allows the development of bone callus in both clavicles, but not in the left humeral fracture.
