Introduction :Morphometric variations of the suprascapular notch and the ossification of the superior transverse scapular ligament bridging the notch and thus transforming it into the suprascapular foramen is the potential cause for the suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome. We report here a rare occurrence of both suprascapular notch and suprascapular foramen together in a left scapula. Case report: The notch was wide and blunt V shaped while the foramen was tiny and oval in shape. Conclusion: Co-existence of both suprascapular notch and the foramen may aggravate the suprascapular neuropathy condition.
