Enthesopathy of the tuberositas radii. A diagnostic problem
Acta Orthopaedica Belgica
The radial tubercle is rarely the site of enthesopathy. When it occurs, symptoms and radiological images are usually typical enough for unequivocal diagnosis. We report the case of a man with atypical pain and X-rays modifications of the radial tubercle. Correct diagnosis was established by histological analysis. Better knowledge of this pathology should prevent unnecessary excision.
