A 17-YEAR-OLD boy was examined by a medical profile committee prior to army induction. He reported an existing problem in his right shoulder. While playing basketball at school, he had a radiograph obtained of his painful shoulder (Figure 1).
He was referred to an orthopedic surgeon who suggested that surgery was indicated. The pain subsided and no surgery was performed. On inspection the contour of the shoulder was normal. He had full strength and full range of motion.
