Septic and non-septic olecranon bursitis in the accident and emergency department

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=8894865

Trauma can cause both septic and non-septic olecranon bursitis. Clinical features are helpful in separating septic from non-septic olecranon bursitis, but there may be local erythema in both. Aspiration...
