OBJECTIVES: Pain is one of the most commonly reported breast complaints. Referred pain from inflammation of the shoulder bursa is often overlooked as a cause of breast pain. The objective of this study is to evaluate the role of shoulder bursitis as a cause of breast/chest pain. METHOD: An IRB-approved retrospective review from July 2005 to September 2009 identified 461 patients presenting with breast/chest pain. Cases identified with a trigger point in the medial aspect of the ipsilateral scapula were treated with a bursitis injection at the point of maximum tenderness...

Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is an idiopathic, progressive, systemic fibrosis that occurs in patients with renal diseases. Recently, gadolinium-containing contrast (Gd-contrast) has become a suspected causal factor for NFS. This report discusses two female patients with end-stage renal disease, aged 70 and 51 years, respectively, who developed histologically proven NSF after exposure to Gd-contrast. Clinically, both patients were characterized by fibrosis and induration of skin and muscle mainly in the limbs with joint contracture...

Ultrasonography (US) and power Doppler sonography (PDS) was used to investigate causes of new onset of shoulder pain and sites of shoulder inflammation in 157 shoulders of 99 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). US detected effusion and/or synovitis in 92/157 glenohumeral joints, subdeltoid bursitis in 56/157 shoulders and tenosynovitis of biceps tendon in 55/157 shoulders. Bursitis and/or tenosynovitis were accompanied by glenohumeral synovitis in 68/90 shoulders. 68% of serologically active and 12% of serologically inactive patients had glenohumeral synovitis...

The prevalence of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) symptoms and doctor-diagnosed musculoskeletal disorders (DDMDs) were estimated among union construction ironworkers by a telephone-administered questionnaire. Of 1996 ironworkers eligible, 1566 were contacted and 981 were interviewed. The prevalence of self-reported MSD symptoms was high for the lower back (56%), wrist/hands/fingers (40%), knees (39%), and shoulders (36%). The most common DDMDs were tendonitis (19%), ruptured disk in the back (18%), bursitis in the shoulder (15%), and carpal tunnel syndrome (12%)...

Five myofascial pain syndromes, some mimicking more serious diseases, have been presented. They were diagnosed as and treated for: headache, shoulder bursitis, lumbar herniated disc with radiculopathy, angina pectoris and appendicitis. An understanding of these pain problems, produced from trigger points in muscles and ligaments, is important in order to differentiate myofascial pain syndromes from more dangerous diseases and to avoid unnecessary and expensive diagnostic procedures.

Shoulder bursitis seldom appears in rheumatoid arthritis. It is usually associated with an involvement of the omohumeral joint but it may be isolate and sometimes indicative. The production of foreign bodies is very rare (3 published cases). We report about one observation of subacromiodeltoid bursitis with rice bodies, associated with rheumatoid arthritis following a severe evolution.
