The article presents a case study of a 70-year old man with a painful swollen elbow. Diagnosis shows olecranon bursitis where an inflammation of the bursa overlying the olecranon process of the ulna caused by infection, however, is not associated with arthritis. The article discusses how to manage the case such as treating the disease by an antibiotic followed by incision and drainage.
