Abstract

Abstract: The association of severe osteolysis of clavicles and ribs in a patient with progressive systemic sclerosis is reported. The disappearance of the clavicles and upper ribs was not associated with any symptoms. The possible causes of this uncommon association are discussed. Copyright © 1982, Wiley Blackwell.
