Case report: biceps tenosynovial rice bodies.

Author information

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, Los Angeles, California 90020, USA.


Here we report the first documented case of rice body formation within the biceps tenosynovium in a patient with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. We discuss the pathophysiology and the clinical and radiographic findings and correlate these to prior case studies. Lastly, we suggest that limited awareness is a barrier in achieving a timely diagnosis and appropriate management.
