Rare Presentation of a Rare Tumor: Histiocytic Sarcoma.

Cureus 2020 Apr 21;12(4):e7770. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Neurology, University of Illinois College of Medicine, Peoria, USA.

An 84-year-old male, with a large gouty tophus over the left elbow for 20 years, developed a new left elbow area mass about three months ago and presented to the emergency department (ED) with complaints of bleeding from that left elbow area mass after a small blunt injury. Initially diagnosed as olecranon bursitis, it had the worsening size and atypical growth associated with persistent leukocytosis. After being evaluated by multiple specialties, including infectious diseases, orthopedic surgery, and rheumatology, it was decided to do a biopsy, which resulted in the diagnosis of histiocytic sarcoma.

UCHealth Steadman Hawkins Clinic - Denver, 175 Inverness Drive West Suite 200, Englewood, CO 80112, USA; Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Colorado, Aurora, CO, USA. Electronic address:

Distal triceps ruptures are uncommon, usually caused by a fall on an outstretched hand or a direct blow. Factors linked to injury include eccentric loading of a contracting triceps, anabolic steroid use, weightlifting, and traumatic laceration. Risk factors include local steroid injection, hyperparathyroidism, and olecranon bursitis. Read More

Chronic bursitis and tenosynovitis revealing Whipple's disease.

Joint Bone Spine 2020 Jan 30. Epub 2020 Jan 30.

Department of Rheumatology, CHU Clermont ferrand, 58 rue Montalembert, 63003 Clermont Ferrand Cedex 1, France.

Joint complaints, most commonly intermittent arthritis, are the initial manifestation in about three-fourths of Whipple's disease cases. We herein report on two cases wherein Whipple's disease manifested itself as chronic bursitis and tenosynovitis at several sites. A 42 year-old man had bilateral olecranon bursitis, a right patellar bursitis and an extensor tenosynovitis on the left wrist and a 54 year-old man had extensor tenosynovitis at both wrists and a bilateral tenosynovitis of the extensors at both ankle.

Management of septic bursitis.

Joint Bone Spine 2019 Oct 26;86(5):583-588. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Inserm, UMR 1125, 1, rue de Chablis, 93017 Bobigny, France; Sorbonne Paris Cité, université Paris 13, 1, rue de Chablis, 93017 Bobigny, France; Service de rhumatologie, groupe hospitalier Avicenne-Jean-Verdier-René-Muret, Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), 125, rue de Stalingrad, 93017 Bobigny, France.

Superficial septic bursitis is common, although accurate incidence data are lacking. The olecranon and prepatellar bursae are the sites most often affected. Whereas the clinical diagnosis of superficial bursitis is readily made, differentiating aseptic from septic bursitis usually requires examination of aspirated bursal fluid. Read More

Unusual olecranon mass with ulnar nerve compressive neuropathy caused by a haemophilic pseudotumour.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Sep 6;12(9). Epub 2019 Sep 6.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

A 55-year-old man with a history of haemophilia A and bilateral haemophilic arthropathy of the elbows presented with an enlarging left elbow mass and worsening paresthesias in the ulnar distribution of the left hand. The mass, originally thought to be olecranon bursitis and treated as such, was found to be due to a haemophilic pseudotumour. The patient underwent successful excision of the haemophilic pseudotumour with concomitant ulnar nerve decompression and had sustained resolution of the pseudotumour and symptoms at 10 years of follow-up.

Empirical Treatment of Uncomplicated Septic Olecranon Bursitis Without Aspiration.

J Hand Surg Am 2020 Jan 14;45(1):20-25. Epub 2019 Aug 14.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, HI.

Purpose: Although aspiration of septic olecranon bursitis is recommended in the literature, no high-level evidence exists to support this practice. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively compare the results of traditional bursal aspiration (TBA) with empirical management without aspiration (EM). We hypothesized that EM of uncomplicated septic olecranon bursitis results in resolution, with fewer chronic draining sinuses and less progression to bursectomy. Read More

Orthopedics 2019 Jul 27;42(4):e381-e384. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

In this study, the authors investigated the viability of endoscopic bursectomy as a treatment for septic prepatellar and olecranon bursitis. Conventional treatment of septic bursitis consists of aspiration, antibiotics, and rest. When conservative treatment fails, however, surgical intervention is sometimes required to resolve the infection. Read More
