Condensing osteitis of the clavicle is a rarely seen pathology since its first description in 1974. Although mechanical stress is claimed for aetiology, but remains a dilemma for physicians. The intermittent or steady pain is variable in intensity and generally localised at the medial end of the involved clavicle, supraclavicular fossa, ipsilateral anterior thorax and shoulder. In this report, we present a 28-year-old man with the regression of the condensing osteitis of the clavicle after the extraction of a decayed tooth.
