Author(s): Dr. Manit Arora, Dr. Aditya Narula and Dr. Digpal Ranawat
Abstract: Intraarticular injections are considered as minor day care/opd procedures around the world. Intra-articular injections for shoulder are used frequently in our region by both Orthopaedic surgeons as well as general practitioners. These injections are not without complications and require training regarding its indication and technique. We are reporting a case of a 52 year old male who presented with abscess of the posterior aspect of left shoulder region post attempted intraarticular injection, that was managed surgically by incision and drainage. This case study should help us understand the inherent complications of such injections and gives insight about the current practice of intra-articular injections.
