The clavicle, humerus and acromioclavicular (AC) joint separately are very commonly involved in traumatic injuries around the shoulder.Acromioclavicular joint dislocation with distal clavicle fracture is a well-recognized entity in clinical practice. AC joint dislocation with midshaft clavicle fracture is uncommon and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. However, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report to describe an acromioclavicular dislocation with ipsilateral midshaft clavicle, mid shaft humerus, and coracoid process fracture. Fractures of the humerus and clavicle along with the acromioclavicular joint dislocation were fixed at the same setting. A 65-year-old male met with a high-velocity road traffic accident. Plain radiographs showed displaced mid third clavicle fracture with acromioclavicular joint dislocation with midshaft humerus fracture.Acromioclavicular joint fixation was done using tension band wiring and the coracoclavicular ligament was repaired using a 2-0 ethibond.The comminuted coracoid fracture was managed conservatively. K-wires were removed at 6 weeks and early mobilization was started.
