Clavicle fracture, a very rare delayed complication following radical neck dissection of oral carcinoma, is nor-mally ignored by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. We report and analyze a male patient with clavicle fracture after primary extended excision and bilateral radical neck dissection. This case was misdiagnosed as cervical metastasis.

Key words: mouth floor carcinoma, radical neck dissection, clavicle fracture
