The shoulder pain is a common problem among patients that look for health care. The correct diagnosis and the therapy can be difficult due to the comprehensive list of dysfunctions that can cause this symptom; among these trapping of the secondary supraescapular nerve to ganglions should be considered, although it has been considered as a relatively not very frequent condition, it is easily ignored in the differential diagnosis.
With the advent of the new diagnostic techniques, Magnetic Resonance of the shoulder is more often carried out because it offers an image quality and a good resolution for diagnosis and treatment.
