Subcutaneous calcaneal bursa

Last revised by Dr. Jair Antunes Eleterio Neto on 03 Mar 2022

The subcutaneous calcaneal bursa, also referred to as retroachilleal bursa or superficial retrocalcaneal bursa is located between the calcaneal tendon and the skin. 

It is distinct from the retrocalcaneal bursa, which is located between the calcaneal tendon and the posterior angle of the calcaneus.
