LITTLE LEAGUE ELBOW
The patient is usually an adolescent baseball pitcher who complains of pain either on inner or outer portion of the elbow.
Little league elbow is really a syndrome. The repetitive incurred with pitching causes a stretch injury to the inside of the elbow and possible compression injury to the outside of the elbow. Inner elbow pain is due to microtrauma to the medial anterior oblique ligament as well as accelerated growth and fragmentation of the medial epicondylar growth plate.
