Scapulothoracic Dissociation (STD) is a rare injury that can be recognized on Chest X-Ray (CXR). It has potentially devastating associated findings including complete brachial plexus avulsion and subclavian artery disruption. This paper presents a Scapulothoracic dissociation without significant associated neurovascular or orthopedic injury.
