History and Clinical Presentation

A 52-year-old right hand dominant carpenter and avid golfer presented with complaints of pain well localized to the right extensor muscle mass just distal to the elbow joint that had persisted for 6 months. He describes the pain as aching in character with burning that radiates along the anatomic course of the forearm extensor muscles. He has noticed a slowly enlarging mass over the dorsal proximal forearm and complains of weakness in grip strength and diminished endurance. He has no complaints of sensory loss to the hand or forearm. He denies any history of trauma.
