Milwaukee shoulder syndrome is a progressively destructive shoulder arthropathy mostly seen in mostly women over 70 years age. It is associated with severe pain and generalized restriction of joint movements, usually associated with rotator cuff tear. A 85 years old female presented to our hospital with chief complain of pain and decreased range of movements in both shoulder joints. Investigations were done including FNAC and Biopsy which could not identify any evident cause. Therefore diagnosis was made on clinico-radiological bases and patient was managed. Surprisingly patient had relief with plain NSAID’s compared to opioids.
