Brief description/objective

Calcific tendinitis at the femoral insertion of the glutaeus maximus tendon is an unusual but well-described location for an ossifying enthesopathy. Extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy has become a standard therapy for various pathologies in orthopaedics. We report a case of a 50-year-old man with painful calcific tendinitis at the femoral insertion of the glutaeus maximus tendon who successfully underwent extracorporeal shock-wave treatment.
