Case report: Reversible isolated infraspinatus weakness due to traumatic posterior shoulder instability
Author(s): Joseph Y Choi, Andrew Simon, Joseph Narloch and Kirk L Jensen
Abstract: We report a case of isolated infraspinatus atrophy due to posterior instability of the shoulder after a traumatic fall. Once the glenohumeral joint was stabilized, the patient improved clinically and electrodiagnostic studies normalized. This may be a missed pathologic entity due to the infrequent nature of this type of problem
