The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.
Orpha Number: 2391
Congenital shortness of the costocoracoid ligament is a rare anomaly characterized by fixation of the scapula to the first rib, resulting in a cosmetic deformity with rounding of the shoulders and loss of the anterior clavicular contour.
It has been described only once, in several members of a single family from Canada.
The abnormality resulted in a strong pectoral girdle with lack of mobility. Movements requiring rotation or retraction of the scapula were limited, but this does not normally interfere with daily activities.
Management and treatment
Surgical treatment, which revealed a short costocoracoid ligament and sometimes ossification, consists of excision of the ligament and results in some cosmetic correction.
