Traumatic manubriosternal dislocation is a rare sequel of blunt thoracic trauma. We report a case of 22-year-old man who presented with the history of road traffic accident and sustained manubriosternal dislocation. Initial chest X-ray did not show the lesion; however, a follow-up lateral view revealed the dislocation. In addition, the patient had fracture of the lamina of the C7 vertebra. In view of uncomplicated manubriosternal dislocation and the absence of any major associated injury, the patient was managed conservatively. In the presented case, we discuss the mechanism of injury, type of dislocation.
