Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Bursitis of knee. Knee of a 57-year-old woman suffering from infrapatellar bursitis. Bursitis is the inflammation of a bursa, a fibrous, fluid- filled sac that surrounds a joint. In this case it is the infrapatellar bursa, which lies between the upper surface of the tibia (lower leg bone) and the skin, that is affected. Bursitis may be caused by injury, overuse of the joint or by infection. It is usually treated with corticosteroid injections, which relieve the pain and reduce the swelling.
