We report a case of a 53-year-old man who presented with a diagnostic dilemma mimicking septic arthritis. It is important to consider the diagnosis of calcific peri-arthritis clinically and recognize the hallmarks on radiograph and magnetic resonance imaging as this disease process resolves completely with conservative management like in our patient, and does not require operative intervention.
