ABSTRACT

Olecranon bursitis is rarely seen in patients with stroke, but reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome is not. Here, we report a stroke case, which represented the clinical symptom of reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome after development of olecranon bursitis in few days, and describe his clinical association between both conditions. Sonographicpicture of the right elbow in this case is shown.
