Entheses are sites where tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, or fascia attach to bone providing a mechanism for reducing stress at the bony interface. Inflammation of the entheses is called enthesitis and enthesitis of the shoulder is a common finding, but it mostly involves rotator cuff tendon. In this case report, we are reporting a case of arthroscopically proven capsular enthesopathy of shoulder joint, and to the best of our knowledge, capsular enthesopathy of glenohumeral joint with arthroscopic proven inferior capsule calcification has yet not been reported in English literature.
