Abstract
Neurofibromatosis is characterized by its skeletal involvement and cutaneous manifestation. Some patients develop focal area of hypoplasia and atrophy at limbs. We present the case of a 13-year-old boy with a fracture of the hypoplastic clavicle associated with neurofibromatosis and brownish cutaneous macules. The patient received open reduction and internal fixation with a semitubular plate and biopsy was done in order to clarify the pathology.
Key Words: Neurofibromatosis; Hypoplastic clavicle
