Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is common in the distal femur, humeral capitulum, and talar dome, but it rarely occurs in the humeral head. Only 12 cases with humeral head OCD have been reported. Most of them occurred in young men in the dominant shoulder. The anterosuperior aspect and the superior aspect of the humeral head were reported as the predominant sites of involvement. However, the medial aspect has never been reported as a site of humeral head OCD.The case of a 29-year-old man who had osteochondritis dissecans on the medial aspect of the humeral head is reported. Fixation of the osteochondral fragment with poly-L-lactic acid pins led to a good clinical result.
