Make the Diagnosis: An Adult Woman with Restricted Shoulder Motion and Neck Pain
Source: MedPage Today Dermatology [2014.11.25]
(MedPage Today) -- Case Study: A twenty-five-year-old woman presented with a lifelong history of restricted left shoulder motion and progressive neck and shoulder pain. She had been told as a child that something was wrong with her shoulder but never received treatment. She had recently started a new job and had noted increasing discomfort in the neck and left shoulder, but she had no radicular symptoms. Physical examination revealed an elevated left shoulder and a tender, firm prominence between the left scapula and lower cervical spine. The patient had near normal motion of the left glenohumeral joint, but no scapulothoracic motion. Active shoulder abduction on the left was 90°, with forward flexion of 100°. She had mild restriction of neck rotation and bending to the left, but the neurovascular examination was normal and there was no atrophy. Preoperative cervical spine radiographs (shown here) and CT scans revealed an underlying posterolateral fusion at the left C5, C6, and C7 vertebral levels, but no cord compression or syrinx.
