What is Tendovaginit?

Description of the disease

Tendovaginitis is inflammation of the tendons, sheaths, and synovial sheaths surrounding the tendons, leading to pain, swelling, and impaired mobility in the affected joint.


Tendovaginitis is classified depending on the site of the lesion: lateral, medial, dorsal, and ventral tendovaginitis.


  • Pain and stiffness in the joint
  • Swelling and redness at the site of the lesion
  • Difficulty in movement
  • Cracking and popping in the joint


Tendon injuries, microtrauma, overuse, rheumatic diseases, infections, and allergic reactions can cause tendovaginitis.


Diagnostic methods include medical examination, blood tests, X-rays, and ultrasound. If necessary, magnetic resonance imaging is performed.


Tendovaginitis treatment may include the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, physiotherapy, and joint rehabilitation exercises.


To prevent tendovaginitis, it is important to avoid overuse, properly stretch muscles before physical activity, maintain proper posture, and avoid injuries.


Tendovaginitis is treated by a rheumatologist or orthopedist.
