Abstract

A case of calcific tendinitis of the pectoralis major insertion with cortical bone erosion is presented. Clinical and laboratory findings showed a significant inflammatory reaction. Both CT and MR images demonstrated the extent of the lesion providing additional information on the dimensions of inflammatory soft tissue and bone marrow reaction. Biopsy was performed and histology revealed the typical features of calcification, inflammation and giant cell reaction.
