PREPATELLAR BURSITIS

1. The term housemaid’s knee comes from its association with individuals whose work necessitates kneeling for extended periods.

2. Management - rest, ice, compression and analgesia.

3. Aspiration followed by instillation of corticosteroid can be helpful, but a septic bursitis should be ruled out first.
