Coracoid process fracture is an uncommon injury and can be easily missed. An associated acute subscapularis tear is still rare. Herein, we describe a 61 year old male who fell from a 2 meter height (stair case) and presented with isolated coracoid process fracture with acute subscapularis tear without dislocation of (R) shoulder joint. The plain x-rays, CT scan and MR arthrography comprised the diagnosis. He was operated upon with reattachment of subscapularis to lesser tuberosity and conjoint tendons to pectoralis major. At 6 mo followup he had good range of motion and his MRI revealed complete healing.
