Elbow Bursitis


My lovely 87 year old patient took a tumble and sustained some bruises a few weeks ago.  Fortunately she had no broken bones but she did land on her right elbow.  The elbow swelled up and was tender and warm to the touch.  The fluid was drained and it was bloody.  In her case the fluid reaccumulated.  Now several weeks later this is what it looks like.  It is cool to the touch and not tender.
