Although pectoralis major (PM) muscle rupture is a rare injury it was reported frequently in recent years. Although there are few studies reporting that surgical treatment is superior, there is no clarity about the choice of treatment methods for pectoralis major muscle tears. Herewith, a total rupture of pectoralis major muscle case has been reported who was treated with conservative methods.
