Abstract: Tuberculosis may affect almost all part of the body. However, it is very uncommon for tuberculosis to involve the sternoclavicular joint. We report the case of a 40-year-old female presented with pain and swelling of the medial edge of the right clavicle. A focused Computed tomography and early biopsy had help in timely diagnosis. The patient was put on anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy for on year. After treatment, the clinical and functional evolution were good.
