The prevalence of metastatic tumorous lesion at medial clavicle or sternoclavicular joint is low. Herein, we presented a 45-year-old female patient with left sternoclavicular joint pain followed a weight-lifting exercise. The patient was initially diagnosed as traumatic sternoclavicular arthrosis, however, on later computed tomography scan demonstrated the bony destruction of medial clavicle which was diagnosed as metastasized non-small cell lung carcinoma after a fine needle biopsy.
