We report a case of a 15-year-old girl who presented with pain and swelling in the right shoulder. Imaging studies showed an inflammatory process well limited at the rotator interval.

Open biopsy showed an osteogenic process that was evident in the postoperative X-rays.

Two-year follow-up showed a mature ossification at the rotator interval.
