Intraosseous ganglia of the proximal humerus are rare and their etiology is unknown. This report describes a case of an intraosseous ganglion of the proximal humerus. The patient was a 47-year-old woman with a painful left shoulder with a limited range of motion. On magnetic resonance imaging a cystic lesion of the proximal humerus was detected. There was no communication between the cyst and the joint space. On macroscopic examination, a multiloculated cystic lesion was seen. Microscopically it was clear that it was a cyst of intraosseous ganglia. At 2 weeks after the surgery, the patient was almost free of pain. Though there were few reports earlier, the pathological feaures were not highlighted. We describe here more about the pathologic features of the lesion.
