Abstract

We present a patient with an asymptomatic painless medial elbow swelling of one year's duration, which was diagnosed as a ganglion originating from a non-united avulsion fracture of the medial epicondyle with a pseudarthrosis. Medial elbow ganglia are unusual lesions typically arising from the medial aspect of the ulnohumeral joint capsule, often in combination with symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome. To our knowledge, a ganglion arising from a pseudarthrosis has not been reported in the literature, and should be considered in the differential diagnoses of lesions encountered over the site of fracture non-union in proximity to a joint.
