Abstract


Scapulothoracic dissociation is a potentially limb-threatening and life-threatening high energy injury. Diagnosis could be obscured due to other associated trauma sustained by the patient. We present a rare case of motor vehicle accident involving 2 motorcyclists who collided onto each other, resulting in both victims sustaining left upper limb scapulothoracic dissociation.
