Spinoglenoid cysts are a rare cause of suprascapular neuropathy of compressive etiology in which the patient may present with shoulder pain and muscle hypotrophy. MRIs are the imaging modality of choice showing location, size, and extent of the lesion for preoperative assessment. Currently, surgical intervention is the preferred approach for the management of a spinoglenoid cyst with arthroscopy being favored over the open technique.
