ABSTRACT
This article reports that olecranon bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa overlying the olecranon process at the proximal aspect of the ulna, caused by acute trauma or repetitive minor trauma. No local anaesthetic is normally required for aspiration. One should advance the needle while maintaining negative pressure in the syringe. Once fluid flows, do not advance the needle further. If the fluid is clear, hold the needle in place and change to a pre-prepared syringe containing a steroid with lignocaine and inject slowly.
