Purpose: To investigate the possible relationship between rotator cuff tendon pathologies detected with magnetic resonance imaging and obesity and chronic diseases.
Materials and Methods: Two hundred and sixty seven patients, who underwent shoulder MRI between 2014 January and October 2014 for pain and limitation of motion in the shoulder, were reviewed retrospectively. Tendon pathology was detected in 153 patients and they were included in the study. Tendon pathologies were examined by two radiologists. Tendon pathologies were divided into 3 groups including tendinosis, partially rupture and full thickness rupture. Body mass index (BMI) values were calculated for all patients. The study group were divided into two groups as BMI

Key words: Tendon patology, body mass index, chronic disease, shoulder magnetic resonance imaging
