Abstract

A new syndrome involving the shoulder joints is described, associating HA crystals in microspheroids, active collagenase, neutral protease with destruction of the fibrous rotator cuff and glenohumeral osteoarthritis. This pathogenetic mechanism postulated for this destructive arthropathy may have applicability for the devolutionary joint changes associated with other microcrystals found in joints and almost certainly applies to other joints besides the shoulder.
