Abstract

The cervical rib is an additional rib arising from the transverse process of the seventh cervical vertebra. This rib may terminate free in soft tissue or may be attached to the first rib. The cervical rib is a congenital anomaly that occurs in less than 1% of the general population and sometimes causes severe symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome. Hereby, we report a 13-year-old boy with an atypical articulation between the left seventh cervical rib and the left first thoracic rib.
