What is olecranon bursitis?

Olecranon bursitis is a type of bursitis that specifically affects the elbow. Oftentimes the first sign of olecranon bursitis is swelling, followed by pain and sometimes an infection. Similar to bursitis, olecranon bursitis may occur as a result of trauma to the area, prolonged pressure on the elbow, infection, or underlying medical conditions like arthritis and gout.
