What Is Olecranon Bursitis?

Elbow Bursitis occurs in the Olecranon Bursa, a thin and fluid filled sac that is located on the boney tip of the elbow. It is also known as the olecranon.

The olecranon bursa is normally flat, but if it becomes irritated or inflamed more fluid will accumulate in the bursa. This results in a bursitis.
