Bursitis am medialen Kollateralband des Knies

Pes anserinus bursitis refers to symptomatic inflammation of the pes anserinus bursa which is located at the medial aspect of the knee (at the level of the joint space) deep to the pes anserinus tendons.

Clinical presentation

Classically, symptoms are of pain and swelling along the proximal medial tibia, which may be exacerbated by particular activities such as ascending and descending stairs.

Radiographic features

The anatomic location is the key to making the diagnosis. The actual signs are those of bursitis anywhere else in the body .

  • increased fluid within the bursa
  • thickened bursal wall 
  • surrounding tissue edema
  • abnormal wall / surrounding tissue enhancement

With the correct history of pain, many clinicians will diagnose pes anserinus bursitis based on the presence of increased bursal fluid alone.
