Lateral epicondylitis with rupture of the radial collateral ligament of the elbow has not been reported in the literature. We report on a case of a recreational golfer who had not received steroid injection and had no trauma history. The patient was treated with open surgical repair. At 2 years follow-up, satisfactory clinical and radiological outcomes were observed with return to pre-injury level. The authors report this case and review the literature.
Key Words: Open extensor carpi radialis brevis repair; Lateral epicondylitis; Radial collateral ligament rupture
