Villonodular synovitis of the shoulder developed in two elderly patients. Huge soft tissue mass, marked joint effusion, and radiographs demonstrating severe osteoarthritic changes characterized these patients. Localized shoulder muscle atrophy accounts for residual painfree limitation of active shoulder motion following synovectomy of the shoulder joint. 1987 The American Geriatrics Society
