An ­unusual ­case of myo­sitis ossif­i­cans sec­on­dary to a ­muscle ­tendon junc­tion (MTJ) ­strain of ­long ­head of ­biceps in a ­young ath­lete is ­reported. ­Plain radio­graphs, ultra­so­nog­raphy and MRI in asso­ci­a­tion ­with clin­ical assess­ment ­showed the appear­ance and the evo­lu­tion of ­this path­o­log­ical ­entity. ­This ­case had a res­o­lu­tion of ­pain and func­tion ­after 3 ­months of con­ser­va­tive treat­ment. At 6 ­months ­follow-up, the ath­lete ­became asymp­to­matic and he grad­u­ally ­returned ­back to his ­sports ­activity.
