Abstract

Isolated fracture of a cervical rib is a very rare entity. Cervical rib fracture due to heavy backpack usage is a new occupational hazard for students. Cervical rib fracture usually presents as a painless swelling or as thoracic outlet syndrome. We report two patients with cervical rib fractures, one of them secondary to backpack usage, and review the available literature.
