A 52-year-old female presented with a chronic anterior right shoulder pain for 6 months. On examination, a palpable tender mass was found along the anterior aspect of the right shoulder; however, the patient had no history of trauma to the right arm. In addition, a normal range of passive motion and a painful range of motion in flexion and abduction were observed. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the right shoulder joint revealed a oval-shaped proton density (PD)/T2 hyperintense cystic mass (measuring 15.5 mm × 6 mm) that was encapsulated by the tendon sheath of the long head of the biceps [Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b,[Figure 1]c,[Figure 1]d.
