Anterior Shoulder Fracture Dislocations in A Patient With Stiffmans Syndrome and Convulsive Disorder: Rare Case Report

Opondo Everisto


Anterior shoulder fracture dislocation is a challenging case though commonly seen in conjunction with convulsive disorders. No case of stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS) presenting with anterior fracture dislocation is reported in the literature. SPS is estimated to have a prevalence of about one per million with the first known description being attributed to Moersch and Woltman in 1956. The diagnosis and injury patterns of anterior fracture dislocation are more clearly seen on Computed Tomography (CT) Scans which also aids in planning for the surgical management. The treatment outcome after surgical reduction and internal fixation of the fracture with dislocation is associated with excellent functional results.
