A 65-year-old woman, who had been suffering from erosive rheumatoid arthritis, presented with swollen shoulders. Also, she experienced a weary feeling in her left arm. An MRI scan of the left shoulder showed multiple nodules ('rice bodies') in the subacromial-subdeltoid bursa. We extracted the nodules via a deltopectoral approach, after which the symptoms disappeared.
