Introduction and importance: Clavicular tumors are rare, consisting of <1 % of all skeletal tumors. In this series, we described our experience of treating medial clavicular tumors. Case presentation: We treated three patients with medial clavicle tumors at a national tertiary referral hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia. The patients were treated with wide excision following bony reconstruction from fibular bone and one patient was treated by marginal excision. Each patient was treated by surgery and one patient underwent reconstruction using non-vascularized fibular graft and composite using bone cement. Clinical discussion: All patients resulted in restoration of symmetry of the lower neck and upper chest and no post-surgical complication. Based on these cases above and the extension of tumor, we recommend medial clavicle tumor resection classification divided into three type to decide which type of surgical procedure that should be performed. In our report, all patients resulted in restoration of symmetry of the lower neck and upper chest and no post-surgical complication. Conclusion: Clavicle resection in management of medial third clavicle tumor is technically demanding. We proposed three types of clavicular resection based on tumor extension. The surgical technique of medial end clavicle in this patient resulted in tumor free margin of medial clavicular, medial scapula, and lateral scapular incision. Reconstruction surgery following clavicle resection can be done in order to restore symmetry of the lower neck and upper chest, protect nearby neurovascular bundle, and rarely associated with significant shoulder function loss.
