18 Possible Causes for Elbow Dimples, Joint Contracture, Tendinitis

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    In patients with insidious onset or without treatment, skin changes can evolve from edema to induration and peau d' orange dimpling.[] ‘Involvement of the sites of insertion of ligaments and tendons is manifested clinically as Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and costochondritis.’[] A 14-year-old boy was suspected of having a myopathy with joint contractures.[]

  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Dimpling of the skin below he acromion (the sulcus sign) indicates inferior humeral translation. This indicates instability of the shoulder joint.[] Nonsurgical treatment Initial episodes of bursitis or “tendinitis” can be treated nonsurgically: rest, ice, oral anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy, etc.[] […] ligament Loss of RTC muscles causing superior migration of humerus Secondary impingement from unstable shoulder Acromial defects Anterior or posterior capsular contractures[]

  • Melorheostosis

    However at the age of 5 weeks her mother noticed dimpling of the skin on her right thigh.[] Contractures, ligamentous and tendinous shortening and even soft tissue involvement may ensue.( Monomelic melorheostosis of the hand by Brenner, Wannske).[] Melorheostosis is a rare condition which can cause soft tissue joint contractures.[]

  • Tibia Varum

    She was noted to have short, broad hands and feet with deep palmar creases, short toes, and dimples in the elbows and knees.[] A few of the clinical signs of supination instability are recurrent inversion ankle sprains, peroneus brevis tendinitis or peroneus brevis muscle strain (Kirby, Kevin A.[] Clubbed feet and joint contractures may be seen. There is bowing of the forearm bones with small hands.[]

  • Generalized Amyoplasia

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[] , Achilles Achillodynia - see Tendinitis, Achilles Achlorhydria, achlorhydric (neurogenic) K31.83 Achluophobia F40.228 Acholia K82.8 Acholuric jaundice (familial) (splenomegalic[] Prenatal diagnosis is usually based on the detection of diminished fetal movements and joint contractures on ultrasound.[]

  • Ray-Peterson-Scott Syndrome

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[] contractures and muscular hypotrophy, narrow, small pelvis, lumbar hyperlordosis with scoliosis, and foot deformity (short, overlapping toes).[] […] brittle bone disease Our Approach Browse Doctors broken ankle Browse Doctors bunion Our Approach Browse Doctors bursitis Our Approach To: Bone & Joint Infections Bursitis & Tendinitis[]

  • Acro-Pectoral Syndrome

    Dimples over elbows and knees have been observed in prune belly syndrome, Joubert syndrome and facial clefting syndrome.[] contracture rigid deformity present in all patients Onset of pain usually follows several years after development of joint contracture and contractures progress during childhood[] Skeletal survey may show slipping of multiple epiphysis, cystic lesions, acro-osteolysis, and bone fragmentation at tendinous insertions, fatigue fractures and early osteoarthrosis[]

  • Congenital Absence of Upper Arm and Forearm with Hand Present

    Note the skin dimples at the elbow which are related to the infant's position in utero. Figure 1.45.[] The breadth of our care includes: trauma (fractures and sprains, tendon injury, nerve injury); chronic disorders (carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendinitis); arthritis[] contractures) and a congenital mirror movement syndrome.[]

  • Antecubital Pterygium

    There was dimpling in the elbows (Fig. 2e ). Pterygium was noted in the axillary region.[] Graysons Lig anterior to the neurovascular bundle - run from fibrous tendon sheath to the lat digital sheet Contraction of the MCP joint results from contracture of the pre-tendinous[] It is known that there is the rebound phenomenon after treatment of congenital joint contracture.[]

  • Radial Hemimelia

    Figure 1 b: dorsal view of the same showing some amount of elbow hypoplasia clinically by lack of dimpling and flexion at the cubital fossa region, extremely short forearm[] contractures (e.g., pterygium syndrome, arthrogryposis) Foot and ankle deformities Bone infection (e.g., osteomyelitis, bone defects) Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE[] […] disease Rare syndromic intellectual disability Rare systemic or rheumatologic disease Rare urogenital disease Recessive intellectual disability-motor dysfunction-multiple joint[]
