A 42-year-old housewife was admitted to our clinic because of shoulder pain. At X-ray and CT, multiple calcifications and ossifications were seen in the subscapular bursa and glenohumeral joint. MRI findings were consistent with synovial chondromatosis. Surgical treatment was planned but the patient refused. Thus conservative treatment was initiated for pain relief. The shoulder joint is a rare localization in this disorder. Although our patient’s symptoms resolved with conservative treatment, we think that it would be better to perform surgical treatment because of the increased size and number of loose bodies and minimal or moderate chondral damage.
