Congenital glenoid dysplasia is a rare congenital condition of the shoulder. We report the case of a 6-year-old girl that was referred to our institution for restricted motion of both shoulders. Radiological examination revealed bilateral glenoid dysplasia. At the time of the child's examination, her mother also complained of shoulder stiffness; radiographs of her shoulders were taken and revealed that she too had glenoid dysplasia. Congenital glenoid dysplasia results from failure of development of the inferior ossification center of the glenoid fossa. Shoulder stiffness is the primary resultant disability, although it is variable. Our case is notable because we identified the dysplasia in two successive generations of the same family, although the mother was unaware she had the condition.
