Shoulder & Elbow, 05/16/2012Lan SM et al.
The authors describe the clinical presentation, radiological investigations and strategies for the management of a 56–year–old female who presented with purulent subacromial/subdeltoid bursitis and abscess formation in the rotator cuff muscles as a result of viridans Streptococcus infection. Because of its deep anatomic location, primary subacromial/subdeltoid septic bursitis and pyomyositis of rotator cuff muscles are rarely reported.
