Neuropathic arthropathy of the shoulder is a relatively rare disorder characterized by destruction of joint secondary to loss of sensory innervation. Bilateral Charcot arthropathy is an even rarer disorder, with very few cases reported in the English literature. We herein present a case of bilateral shoulder arthropathy secondary to syringomyelia with classical clinical and radiological findings. Radiological finding on one side was of resorptive type and resorptive mixed with productive on the other side.
