ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: synovial fold syndrome of the elbow

History: A 17 year old female cheerleader reports experiencing acute left elbow pain while performing gymnastics maneuvers during recent practice sessions. The patient describes pain along the lateral aspect of the elbow and a sensation of “catching” during range of motion exercises.

Findings: There were no positive radiographic findings on plain Xray. MRI revealed thickened posterolateral plica with a component interposed between the posterior capitellum and radial head with marrow edema on both sides of the articulation

Ddx: lateral epicondylitis (aka tennis elbow) loose bodies osteoarthritis and snapping triceps tendon

Dxhow: Pathologic findings of excised plica include chronic hypertrophic fibrous synovitis. Significantly thickened plica are noted on MRI

Exam: On physical examination, full extension of elbow was noted to cause worsening of pain and a very small joint effusion was suspected on palpation

No MeSH data available.
