This case report discusses a sudden forearm swelling in an otherwise healthy elderly female, which was initially thought to be malignant following clinical examination and imaging studies. An incisional biopsy showed native bursal tissue – bicipitoradial bursitis. Diagnosing bicipitoradial bursitis is challenging due to its intrinsic anatomical rarity. Nevertheless, merely performing radiological imaging may not adequately confirm the diagnosis since some of the characteristic changes are similar to other pathologies such as a myotendinous tear, a neoplasm or an infection. A histopathological examination may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
