Abstract

Suprascapular nerve entrapment at spinoglenoid notch is rare but well documented. Kopell and Thompson (1) are always credited with providing the first description of the suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome in English literature (2,3) but in fact the first description of suprascapular nerve entrapment was provided by André Thomas in La Presse Médicale, entitled “La paralysie du muscle sous-épineux in 1936” (4,5). We report a case of suprascapular nerve compression at suprascapular foramen.
