Activities of traditional barbers are an age-long practice in northern Nigerian. They are involved in conducting hair barbing and uvulectomy of newborn babies usually on the 7 th day of life. This procedure is often associated with complications like bleeding, infections, but its association with clavicular fracture is a rare event which had not been reported before now. Therefore, the case of a 10-day-old Nigerian girl is highlighted. She was managed conservatively with minimal handling of the involved limb.
