Acute calcific tendinitis of the FCR tendon in a 24-year-old male: A case report
Author(s): Jacob S Alexander and Daniel Penello
Abstract: Acute calcific tendinitis is an acute or chronic condition that typically affects the shoulder joint in patients 40 and older. Specifically caused by the deposition of calcium hydroxyapatite crystals in or around the tendon sheath, the cause is typically unknown but seems to be unrelated to underlying metabolic disturbances and pathologies. In this work, the case of left wrist pain in a 24-year-old male that was initially misdiagnosed but later identified as acute calcific tendinitis is highlighted.
