  • This deformity is found in patients who have sustained anterior shoulder dislocations, usually repeatedly
  • It is a small compression fracture noted on the posterior-lateral aspect of the humeral head that results from impingement of the humeral head against the anterior rim of the glenoid fossa
  • It does not change management but can be a sign that your patient has sustained multiple dislocations
