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 bursitis after simultaneous kidney/liver transplantation: a case report and review.

Transpl Infect Dis 2016 Apr 22;18(2):266-74. Epub 2016 Feb 22.

Department of Pathology, Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe, Dinámica IPS, Medellín, Colombia.

Solid organ transplantation is an accepted therapy for end-stage diseases of the kidneys, liver, heart, and lungs. Unfortunately, transplantation is associated with infectious complications. Here, we present a case report of Prototheca wickerhamii olecranon bursitis and review all of the cases in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients published in the literature to date. Read More

Olecranon bursitis.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2016 Jan 11;25(1):158-67. Epub 2015 Nov 11.

Elbow Shoulder Research Centre, Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Bursitis is a common medical condition, and of all the bursae in the body, the olecranon bursa is one of the most frequently affected. Bursitis at this location can be acute or chronic in timing and septic or aseptic. Distinguishing between septic and aseptic bursitis can be difficult, and the current literature is not clear on the optimum length or route of antibiotic treatment for septic cases. Read More

A Randomized Trial Among Compression Plus Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs, Aspiration, and Aspiration With Steroid Injection for Nonseptic Olecranon Bursitis.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2016 Mar 13;474(3):776-83. Epub 2015 Oct 13.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Konkuk University School of Medicine, 120-1 Neungdong-ro (Hwayang-dong), Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, 143-729, Korea.

Background: Olecranon bursitis might be a minor problem in the outpatient clinic but relatively be common to occur. However, there are few well-designed studies comparing approaches to treatment.

Questions/purposes: (1) Which treatment (compression bandaging with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs [NSAIDs], aspiration, or aspiration with steroid injections) is associated with the highest likelihood of resolution of nonseptic olecranon bursitis? (2) Which treatment is associated with earliest resolution of symptoms? (3) What factors are associated with treatment failure by 4 weeks?

Methods: We enrolled 133 patients from two centers; after applying prespecified exclusions (septic bursitis or concomitant inflammatory arthritis, intraarticular elbow pathology, recent aspiration or steroid injection done elsewhere, and refusal to participate), 90 patients were randomly allocated to receive compression bandaging with NSAIDs (C), aspiration (A), or aspiration with steroid injection (AS) groups (30 patients in each).

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2015 Oct 2;24(10):e292-5. Epub 2015 Jul 2.

Perth Radiological Clinic, Subiaco, Perth, WA, Australia.

Background: The purpose of this study was to document the existence of transverse cords in olecranon bursae in patients undergoing excision of the bursa and to describe the unique clinical presentation of patients with these cords.

Methods: A retrospective study was performed on 24 patients who had surgery to excise an olecranon bursa between 2006 and 2011. The patient's history, preoperative radiographs, ultrasound images, intraoperative photographs, and findings on histologic analysis were reviewed in all cases. Read More
