Abstract

Acute calcific tendinitis (ACT) is a benign painful inflammatory disorder characterized by resorptive process of calcific deposits following the formation of calcium hydroxyapatite crystals in the tendons. It can occur at various sites, especially in the shoulder or hip joint. ACT involving the lateral epicondyle of the humerus and the cervical spine is very rare. Few reports have demonstrated successive ACT at different sites. We report three cases of successive ACT in women, occurring at the subscapularis followed by the lateral epicondyle, flexor carpi ulnaris followed by the supraspinatus, and longus colli followed by the iliopsoas, respectively.
