Osteochondroma is frequently seen benign bone tumour and generally develops in the metaphyseal sections of long bones. Scapular involvement is rare. In this paper, a 66-year old female is presented with shoulder pain which had been ongoing for 1 year. The range of movement of the shoulder joint had decreased. Shoulder abduction was especially painful. From examinations of direct radiographs, CT and MRI, rotator cuff rupture was determined associated with subacromial osteochondroma. With a transacromial approach, the osteochondroma was excised and the cuff was repaired. At postoperative 19th month, the patient had a pain-free shoulder with increased range of motion. Although rarely seen in the subacromial region, osteochondroma may cause a rotator cuff rupture. It must not be forgotten that if treatment is delayed the tear will widen, and the importance of early excision should be kept in mind.
