Case:Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) rarely affects the humeral head. We describe a 14-year-old adolescent who, despite conservative treatment, had persistent pain in the left shoulder as well as limited function. Radiographs and a computed tomography (CT) arthrogram revealed an osteochondral defect of the humeral head. He was managed with an arthroscopic osteochondral autograft transfer from the knee, which provided a satisfactory outcome.Conclusion:Arthroscopic osteochondral autograft transfer is an effective option for the treatment of OCD of the humeral head.
