Abstract: Medial elbow pain is uncommon when compared with lateral elbow pain.Medial epicondylitis is an uncommon diagnosis and can be confused with other sources of pain.Overhead throwers and workers lifting heavy objects are at increased risk of medial elbow pain.Differential diagnosis includes ulnar nerve disorders, cervical radiculopathy, injured ulnar collateral ligament, altered distal triceps anatomy or joint disorders.Children with medial elbow pain have to be assessed for 'Little League elbow' and fractures of the medial epicondyle following a traumatic event.This paper is primarily focused on the differential diagnosis of medial elbow pain with basic recommendations on treatment strategies.
