Case Study
The article presents the case study of a thirty-three-year old man who was referred to a medical center after being treated for progressive loss of motion following a hyper-extension injury. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed isolated gallium uptake in the elbow. The patient showed good signs of recovery after being treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

    Background/aims: The elbow is among the most common joints that are aspirated and/or injected. An intra-articular approach should be a convenient and a safe procedure with minimal risk of complications. Several approaches to access the elbow joint have been outlined in the literature, but a...
