53 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.info] Tendonitis is more frequent with fibrosis of the tendon sheaths, give rise to characteristic tendon friction rubs.[arthritis.co.za]

  • 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]

  • Achilles Tendinitis

    Tendocalcaneal Bursitis A bursa is a fluid-filled sac designed to limit friction between rubbing parts. These sacs, or bursae , are found in many places in the body.[orthogate.org] Several different problems can occur that affect the Achilles tendon, some rather minor and some quite severe.[orthogate.org]

  • Tendon Sheath Giant Cell Tumor

    Tendon sheath giant cell tumor is an idiopathic proliferative and destructive disease of the synovium. It is rare and tends to arise in large joints, for example, knee and ankle, but it can also arise in temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Because of its destructive nature, immediate treatment upon diagnosis is[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
