A 17 year old man developed chest pain and shortness of breath immediately after a scrummage while playing rugby football. A lateral chest radiograph showed a dislocated manubriosternal joint, with no associated injuries. This has not been previously reported in a sporting setting. This injury should be considered in flexion-compression injury of the thorax.
