Stress fracture of the scapula in two horses is described. Both horses had a history of acute lameness after strenuous exercise. Using elective nuclear scintigraphy focal increased radiopharmaceutical uptake in the affected scapula consistent with a fracture was identified. Standing radiography was nondiagnostic in both horses. Ultrasonographic findings in one horse were consistent with a minimally displaced incomplete fracture. Both horses were treated conservatively and returned to train and race successfully postinjury. Veterinary
