Scapular body fractures are rare fractures that represent less than 1 % of all fractures and are typically associated with a high energy mechanism of injury. Traditionally these fractures have been treated non-operatively, resulting in union of the fracture and acceptable patient outcomes. We present a case of symptomatic scapular body fracture nonunion following non-operative management that was treated with open reduction and internal fixation with local autologous bone grafting. Our patient went on to successful union of his fracture as well as drastic improvement in shoulder function, range of motion, strength, and patient reported outcome measures assessed throughout his treatment course. The authors believe that scapular body fracture nonunion should be of clinical suspicion in forming the differential diagnosis for a patient who had previously sustained a scapular body fracture with persistent pain and failure to improve following non-operative management. We believe that open reduction and internal fixation with bone grafting can help promote fracture union in these patients and may result in improved shoulder function post-operatively.
