Course

Course

  • Patient told to rest his shoulder from throwing or other sporting activities to prevent further physeal injury

  • Return in three weeks for repeat x-ray and reassess whether he can return to practice

  • Diagnosis: Little Leaguer’s shoulder of the right shoulder

  • Radiographic Features

    • Little Leaguer’s Shoulder = Widening of the proximal humeral physis in adolescent athletes between the ages of 13 and 16

    • Focal physeal widening of the anterior and lateral aspect of the right humeral proximal physis


Differential diagnosis

Differential Diagnosis

  • Posterosuperior glenoid impingement (PSGI)

    • occurs during the hyperextension phase of throwing

    • causing the posterosuperior edge of the glenoid labrum to catch between the humeral head and the rotator cuff

  • Salter-Harris type I
