Patient Data

Age: 36
Gender: Male
A large well-circumscribed fluid intensity T1 hypointense/T2 hyperintense cystic lesion measuring 2.5 X 2.5 (axial) X 2.8 (cc) cm is demonstrated, centered in the spino-glenoid notch, contiguous with the posterior glenoid labrum, in keeping with a paralabral cyst. This results from a focal posterior labral detachment, about 9 o'clock. No extension of the cyst into the suprascapular notch. There is moderate infraspinatus atrophy with denervation edema.
