Benign intraosseous osteolytic lesions of the glenoid are very rare. The present study reports on three cases of symptomatic intraosseous osteolytic lesions of the glenoid in which surgical interventions were made. Of the three, two cases presented with intraosseous ganglion and one case with fibrous dysplasia. In all the cases, the lesion was located at the posteroinferior portion of the glenoid, and it seems to be related to posterior shoulder pain. If intraosseous osteolytic lesions have symptoms or the risk for chondral defects or cortical breakage, surgical intervention is needed and bone curettage with or without bone grafting will be a useful treatment option.
