Abstract

Neuropathic arthropathy involving the shoulder is a relatively rare chronic disorder characterized by the destruction of the joint which is also associated with decreased sensory innervation (Lequesne et al. in Rev Rhum Mal Osteoartic 49(6): 427-437, 1982; Yanik et al. in Rheumatol Int 24(4): 238-241, 2004). Here, we report a case of neuropathic arthropathy of the shoulder (charcot shoulder), secondary to syringomyelia with classic clinical and radiographic features of the entity.
