We present a case of a delayed effect of an old humeral head fracture with dislocated shoulder diagnosed an year after a low energy fall. After the injury, the patient experienced only mild pain and avoided radiological evaluation. The clinical and radiological evaluation showed a malunion of an underestimated displaced humeral head fracture with severe secondary arthritic changes.
