Abstract
The shoulder is the most common site in the body for calcific deposition. Calcific tendinitis is one of the common lesions of the painful shoulder. The surpaspinatus tendon is the most frequently affected location, next the infraspinatus and relatively rare the subscapularis tendon. We report upon a case of calcific tendinitis of subscapularis tendon alone, which developed in a 61-year-old female after minor trauma and was treated successfully with surgical excision.
Key Words: Calcific tendinitis, Subscapularis tendon, Surgical excision
