Ganglion cysts causing suprascapular nerve compression are uncommon cause of suprascapular nerve entrapment. The advent of magnetic resonance imaging and its application in patients with shoulder pain has improved the ability to diagnose cystic lesions causing extrinsic compression of the suprascapular nerve. We present two cases of suprascapular nerve compression by ganglion cyst which was decompressed by surgical excision. Suprascapular nerve compression was also revealed by magnetic resonance imaging(MRI), electromyogram(EMG) and clinical present of muscle atrophy and motor weakness. In each case, the symptom was resolved after sugical excision of the cystic lesion. We experienced two cases of suprascapular nerve entrapment by ganglion cyst and report the clinical, radiological and pathological findings in detail.
Key Words: Suprascapular nerve entrapment, Ganglion
