The shoulder is one of the most commonly dislocated joints in the human body. Complications usually represent local damage. However, it is unclear whether joint dislocations can have systemic sequellae as wSell. Here we present the case of an 86-year-old female who developed necrotizing cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis in immediate response to a shoulder dislocation. We hypothesize there might be a link between trauma and systemic disease. (C) 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
