BursitisSee chapter 9 for further information.
(456) Bursitis (Fig.10-6) arises due to constant trauma of the skin particularly where it covers the bony prominences. The skin reacts, becomes thickened and small soft fluctuating swellings may be formed (false bursae).
Swellings are evident on both legs below the hocks.
