We present an unusual case of chronic diffuse calcifying tendonitis involving the subscapularis tendon with a clinical presentation similar to frozen shoulder in a 58-year-old right hand dominant female. The patient was treated with arthroscopic removal of the calcific deposits. Patient had drastic improvement in the pain score postoperatively; range of movement was near normal with weakness in internal rotation. Now at one year follow up all the movements of shoulder are in good range and of same power as the opposite shoulder except for weak internal rotation.
