No labs were obtained in this case.

Other Studies:
The patient had a normal X-Ray of his right shoulder. After failure of conservative therapy, an MRI Arthrogram was performed which showed a lobulated paralabral cyst extending from the posterosuperior glenoid into the spinoglenoid notch, which communicated along the superior labrum with a glenolabral articular disruption and a partial detachment of the anterosuperior labrum from 1-3 o'clock. There was also associated infraspinatus edema which was consistent with suprascapular nerve impingement syndrome. Case Photo #1, Case Photo #2
