Skeletal Radiol. 2004 Jun;33(6):352-4. doi: 10.1007/s00256-003-0722-1. Epub 2004 Feb 21.


A case of Little Leaguer's shoulder in a skeletally immature patient is described with a review of the English literature. This entity manifests as widening of the proximal humeral physis and is well known to our orthopedic colleagues. To our knowledge, however, there is little in the current radiologic literature describing Little Leaguer's shoulder. We describe such a case.
