Description: Medial epicondylitis of the elbow is a lesion of the common flexor tendon at the medial epicondyle.
Corticosteroids often are injected in and around soft-tissue periarticular lesions to treat regional pain syndromes.
Epicondylitis can be treated successfully in 90% of cases by local corticosteroid injection into the tender tendon origin at the humeral epicondyle.
