Tennis elbow occurs as a result of repetitive microtrauma to the musculotendinous unit causing inflammatory and degenerative tissue damage. A good understanding of the aetiology and pathoanatomy will aid the clinician in preventing and recognising this condition. Early recognition with a quality rehabilitative programme, and the judicious use of surgical intervention usually results in full recovery and excellent functional outcomes.
