Olecranon bursitis, also termed "student's elbow," secondary to the inciting injury of chronic friction applied to a flexed elbow while studying, has numerous causes, including trauma, chronic repetitive micro-trauma and inflammatory diseases such as uric acid deposition in gout, extraarticular deposition of rheumatoid factor in rheumatoid arthritis and calcium pyrophosphate deposition, otherwise known as pseudogout.

The fluid can be examined to see if it contains the crystals that cause gout or pseudogout or if it is moderately or severely inflamed, which suggests you have rheumatoid arthritis.
