This report describes a case of Staphylococcus aureus subacromial septic bursitis after corticosteroid injection in a patient undergoing isotretinoin (Accutane) therapy.

Location: http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/188_01_070108/awe10534_fm.html

Periarticular shoulder disorders are common in clinical practice, and diagnosis is often difficult. Medicare statistics indicate that between 2001 and 2006 the use of diagnostic shoulder ultrasonography increased significantly. Rotator cuff disease, shoulder impingement syndrome and subacromial bursitis are among the most common diagnoses reported on shoulder ultrasonography. Shoulder ultrasonography...
