Given the rarity of the lesion, no bloodless maneuver or surgeries are described in literature. Our technique was based on the rely of the patient without any drugs and in a gentle maneuver to re locate the scapula; the mobility of the scapula on deep and superficial plane helped in the reduction and explains an extreme laxity of the patient that could on the basis of this very rare dislocation.
