A letter that reports a case of a 44-year-old man who was diagnosed with giant cell tumor (GCT) of the supraspinatus tendon sheath which was the cause of impingement in his left shoulder. It outlines the symptoms experienced by the patient. It provides a background of GCTs of tendon sheaths. It describes the outcome of the surgery of the patient.
