Lateral epicondyle of the humerus

Other Terms: Epicondylus lateralis (Humerus), Epicondylus lateralis humeri

Description

This is the lateral nonarticular process of the knuckle-like distal end of the humerus. It is not as prominent as the medial epicondyle, projecting slightly beyond the lateral border of the humerus. Its posterior aspect is subcutaneous and easily palpated. Its anterior aspect serves as the attachment site for the common tendon of the posterior antebrachial muscles.

Etymology

The term epicondyle literally means upon the knuckle, from the Greek epi for upon and kondulos meaning knuckle or knob.

Latin

Epicondylus lateralis humeri
