Charcot shoulder


Marked destruction of bones forming shoulder, with deformed humeral head, marked joint and bursal effusion were seen. Multiple loose bodies/debris seen in distended joint and bursae. Deformed humerus and glenoid does show defects mimicking Hill-Sach's posterolateral humeral defect, and inferior glenoid Bankart's-like lesion. There is also syringomyelia and mild cerebellar tonsillar herniation on spine images.

This case shows classical findings of Charcot Shoulder (Neuropathic joint).
