Juan is a 16-year-old transgender male adolescent, with no significant medical history other than gender dysphoria, who presents to an urgent care clinic with right shoulder pain. He reports no known injuries but has recently increased his workouts as part of his football training. At the urgent care clinic, radiographs of his right upper arm and shoulder are unremarkable. He is given acetaminophen and ibuprofen but is still in significant pain. The urgent care physician calls to ask if you will consider admitting Juan for pain control and further evaluation.
