Rice bodies looking like swelling on specific magnetic resonance sequences are an unusual presentation of subdeltoid tuberculous inflammatory involvement. Rice bodies represent the infarcted or sloughed off synovium due to the inflammatory process. We present a case of a 21-year-old male patient who complained of a soft-tissue swelling around the right shoulder presumed to be a lipoma. The aim of presenting this case is to expand the differential diagnosis of soft-tissue swelling around the shoulder whenever such a condition is encountered.
