Where do ganglion cyst occur in the elbow

A ganglion cyst is a thin-walled cyst filled with mucinous fluid that occurs in soft tissues around a joint. These cysts are frequently caused by repetitive overuse and are seen with osteoarthritis, but are also present with inflammatory conditions or following trauma. They are more frequently seen at the wrist and foot and are uncommon at the elbow. When present, they may become symptomatic if they occur anteriorly and compress the superficial or deep branches of the radial nerve, or in the cubital tunnel with compression of the ulnar nerve.
