Ghizlan El Amri, Mohammed Zalagh, Ali Jahidi, Fouad Benariba

Abstract


Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (NTOS) encloses the whole set of clinical manifestations associated with the compression of the trunks of the brachial plexus and/or of the subclavian vessels as they cross the thoracic outlet (cervico-thoraco-brachial junction). It rarely affects children. We here report the case of a young girl treated for neurologic NTOS caused by supernumerary cervical rib.

Keywords: Supernumerary cervical rib, thoracic outlet syndrome, child
