42 Possible Causes for Tendon Friction Rub

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Palpable or audible friction rubs may be noted over the extensor and flexor tendons of the hands, knees, and ankles.[aafp.org] Tendon friction rubs - palpable/audible over the flexor/extensor tendons of the hands, knees and ankles.[patient.co.uk] Significance of palpable tendon friction rubs in early diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis. Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken) . 2013 Aug. 65(8):1385-9. [Medline] .[emedicine.com]

  • De Quervain Tenosynovitis

    Despite the pathology, thumb overuse and repetitive radial deviation causes the two tendons o continuously rub on the radial styloid, causing friction forces that lead to[morphopedics.wikidot.com] However, newer research suggests that it is a degeneration of the two tendons making the conditions a tendinosis.[morphopedics.wikidot.com]

  • Tendinitis

    As the foot rolls outwards the peroneal tendon is stretched more across the bone increasing the friction between the tendon and the bone.[sportsinjuryclinic.net] Tight calf muscle will increase the tension in the peroneal tendon causing it to rub more.[sportsinjuryclinic.net]

  • Tendon Sheath Giant Cell Tumor

    Giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath are benign, circumscribed tumors that may either arise from the tendon sheath or from the synovium. These lesions are part of the fibriohistiocytic tumor cluster. Most commonly, they are localized, but may also be diffuse. The diffuse form mainly affects lower extremities,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Achilles Tendinitis

    Achilles tendinitis occurs when the tendon that connects the back of your leg to your heel becomes swollen and painful near the bottom of the foot. This tendon is called the Achilles tendon. It allows you to push your foot down. You use your Achilles tendon when walking, running, and jumping. There are two large[…][nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scleroderma Renal Disease

    Palpable or audible friction rubs may be noted over the extensor and flexor tendons of the hands, knees, and ankles.[aafp.org] Significance of palpable tendon friction rubs in early diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis . Arthritis Care Res. 65 , 1385–1389 (2013). 49. Nikpour, M. et al .[nature.com] Significance of palpable tendon friction rubs in early diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis. Arthritis Care Res. 65, 1385–1389 (2013). 49. Nikpour, M. et al.[nature.com]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Tendon friction rubs are observed. Esophageal dysmotility is common and provokes gastroesophageal reflux and sometimes dysphagia.[orpha.net] Palpable or audible friction rubs may be noted over the extensor and flexor tendons of the hands, knees, and ankles.[aafp.org] The palpable tendon friction rub: an important physical examination finding in patients with systemic sclerosis. Arthritis Rheum. 1997;40(6):1146–1151. 6.[aafp.org]

  • Scleroderma

    OBJECTIVE: Palpable tendon friction rubs (TFRs) in systemic sclerosis (SSc; scleroderma) have been associated with diffuse skin thickening, increased disability, and poor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] friction rubs Nailfold capillary dilation and capillary drop-out Early and significant incidence of renal, interstitial lung, diffuse gastrointestinal,and myocardial disease[uofmhealth.org] Tendon friction rubs are found almost exclusively in diffuse systemic sclerosis and may be detected as the tendon is moved actively or passively.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pulmonary Scleroderma

    Palpable or audible friction rubs may be noted over the extensor and flexor tendons of the hands, knees, and ankles.[aafp.org] One of the most intense sources of pain in scleroderma is the deep tissue fibrosis that causes joint contractures and tendon friction rubs in patients with the diffuse form[hopkinsscleroderma.org] Friction Rub Over Wrist : highly specific for scleroderma (but not sensitive) Gastrointestinal Manifestations (common) Esophagitis: Esophageal Dilatation and Dysmotility:[mdnxs.com]

  • Trochanteric Bursitis

    A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that provides cushioning and reduces the friction from tendons and muscles rubbing on underlying bones.[sportsmedtoday.com] When the tendon is tight, it rubs against the bursa. The rubbing causes friction to build in the bursa, leading to irritation and inflammation.[goldmanpt.com] Friction can build in the bursa during walking if the long tendon on the side of the thigh is tight. It is un-clear what causes this tightening of the tendon.[goldmanpt.com]
