Author information

Department of Radiology, University Hospital of Wales, Heath Park, Cardiff, Wales.


Infection around the shoulder joint is rare. Clinical suspicion and diagnostic imaging are required for accurate diagnosis. We present three cases that emphasise particular diagnostic challenges when dealing with infection around the shoulder joint. Discussion includes the role of ultrasound as a screening tool and the importance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the accurate diagnosis and localisation of infections around the shoulder.
