Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is an inflammatory disorder characterized by high-spiking fever, arthritis, and an evanescent rash. The pattern of chronic arthritis is a universal feature of AOSD. However, chronic bursitis with the formation of numerous rice bodies is a very rare presentation in a patient with AOSD. To our knowledge, no case of formation of numerous rice bodies in AOSD has been reported thus far. We describe the case of a 28-year-old man with AOSD with rice bodies in his left shoulder joint.
