Medial epicondylitis

Case contributed by Dr Varun Babu


Pain following a gym workout that has persisted for over a month and doesn't seem to resolve with rest. He wants to get back to working out again. Plain radiograph of the elbow was unremarkable.

Patient Data

Age: 30 years old
Gender: Male

MRI elbow

PD hyperintense signals are seen at the medial epicondyle and extending along the common flexor tendon fibres. 

Case Discussion

Typically golfers elbow is seen in the 4th - 5th decades with other inciting factors including obesity and smoking. However regular weight training can result in symptoms appearing much earlier as was in this case. Adequate rest will help to relieve the symptoms in this patient and he will be able to resume his activities.
