Entrapment of the suprascapular nerve with shoulder pain and atrophic paresis of both the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles has been known since the fifties. So far a bilateral entrapment of the suprascapular nerve has rarely been described. We present a report of an endogenous bilateral entrapment neuropathy of the suprascapular nerve and discuss the differential diagnoses in relation to therapeutic and prognostic consequences.
