Abstract
Neuropathic shoulder arthropathy or Charcot's shoulder is an extremely rare disease, and sometimes it is associated with cervical syringomyelia. Clinical symptoms of the disease include edema of the shoulder and restriction in range of motion. Radiological diagnosis can be made through plain radiography through a characteristic, atrophic destruction of the joint. We experienced a Charcot's joint of the shoulder wherein destruction of the joint progressed extremely quickly and reviewed the literature concerning this condition.
Key Words: Shoulder; Neurogenic arthropathy; Cervical syringomyelia
