Ischeogluteal bursitis (so-called “weaver’s bottom”) is classically associated with sustained pressure on the ischial tuberosity, secondary to prolonged sitting 1. Other causes include gout, tuberculosis and autoimmune arthropathies.
The symptoms of ischiogluteal bursitis can mimic those of radiculopathy, due to the close proximity of the bursa to the sciatic and posterior femoral cutaneous nerve 1.
Ischiogluteal bursitis is able to be clearly demonstrated on ultrasound 2.
