Mycobacterium avium complex olecranon bursitis resolves without antimicrobials or surgical intervention: A case report and review of the literature.

IDCases 2015 13;2(2):59-62. Epub 2015 Apr 13.

Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Utah School of Medicine, 30 N 1900 E, Room 4B319, Salt Lake City, UT 84132, United States.

Introduction: Nontuberculous mycobacteria are an uncommon cause of septic olecranon bursitis, though cases have increasingly been described in both immunocompromised and immunocompetent hosts. Guidelines recommend a combination of surgical resection and antimicrobials for treatment. This case is the first reported case of nontuberculous mycobacterial olecranon bursitis that resolved without medical or surgical intervention. Read More

Protothecal olecranon bursitis: an unusual algal infection.

Am J Med Sci 2011 Nov;342(5):424

Department of Internal Medicine, Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York, USA.

Prototheca is an achlorophyllic alga which rarely causes infections in humans and protothecal olecranon bursitis is remarkably rare. We report a case of a 76-year-old immunocompetent man presenting with pain and swelling of the right elbow secondary to protothecal infection. Initial cultures of the olecranon bursal aspirate revealed no growth; however, repeat aspiration after 2 months grew prototheca species on culture. Read More

Mycobacterium kansasii septic arthritis is rare, most often occurring in immunosuppressed patients including those with organ transplants. We present a case of oligoarticular M. kansasii infection in bilateral ankles, knee, and bilateral olecranon bursae in coexistence with tophaceous gouty arthropathy in a heart transplant patient.

Department of Emergency Medicine, New York Methodist Hospital, Brooklyn, New York 11215, USA.

We describe the case of a 44-year-old man who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) complaining of pain and swelling over the left elbow of 1-week duration. After olecranon bursal aspiration, synovial fluid analysis yielded an increased white blood cell count (3040 cells/mm(3)) and the presence of bacteria. Culture of the fluid later grew Staphylococcus aureus. Read More

Underuse of intra-articular and periarticular corticosteroid injections by primary care physicians: discomfort with the technique.

J Clin Rheumatol 2003 Jun;9(3):187-92

Section of Rheumatology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Musculoskeletal disorders account for 11% to 13% of office visits in ambulatory care clinics and 9% of all physician visits in the United States. Intra-articular or periarticular aspiration or injections are an integral part of the management of arthritis or periarthritis. Our aim was to determine the use and level of comfort of administering intra-articular and periarticular injections by primary care physicians (PCPs) practicing in a university setting. Read More

Osteomyelitis resulting from chronic filamentous fungus olecranon bursitis.

J Clin Rheumatol 2005 Oct;11(5):280-2

Department of Rheumatology, Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, Pennsylvania, 17822, USA.

We describe a case of Phaeoacremonium olecranon osteomyelitis. The patient, initially felt to have traumatic olecranon bursitis, was found to have an indolent filamentous fungus cultured from the olecranon bursa. In retrospect, x-rays revealed bony erosion, which heightened the index of suspicion for infection in this particular case. Read More

Exophiala oligosperma causing olecranon bursitis.

J Clin Microbiol 2003 Oct;41(10):4779-82

Department of Pathology, University of Iowa Roy J.Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa 52240, USA.

A 62-year-old male with a history of Wegener's granulomatosis and immunosuppressive therapy presented with chronic olecranon bursitis. A black velvety mould with brown septate hyphae and tapered annellides was isolated from a left elbow bursa aspirate and was identified as an Exophiala species. Internal transcribed sequence rRNA sequencing showed the isolate to be identical to Exophiala oligosperma. Read More

Olecranon and prepatellar bursitis: treating acute, chronic, and inflamed.

Phys Sportsmed 2000 Mar;28(3):40-52

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, John Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Elbow and knee bursitis is common in both athletes and nonathletes and has three basic presentations: acute, chronic nonseptic, and chronic infected. Most acute swellings occur after trauma and can be treated with early aspiration, compression, and padding. Chronic, nonseptic bursitis can usually be treated with conservative therapy and, occasionally, aspiration or corticosteroid injection. Read More

Texas Veterinary Medical Center, Department of Large Animal Medicine and Surgery, College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University, College Station 77843-4475, USA.

Medical records of 10 horses with olecranon bursitis were reviewed to examine treatments, evaluate a technique for en bloc resection of the bursa in standing horses, and determine outcome of the horses after treatment. Before admission, 6 horses had been treated by needle aspiration of fluid from the mass, followed by injection of corticosteroids. Subsequent treatment for 2 of these 6 horses included open drainage and packing of the cavity with gauze soaked in 7% iodine solution. Read More
