Intersection Syndrome

Intersection syndrome is the name given to an inflammatory response and possible bursitis at the site where two of the thumb tendons, the abductor pollicis longus and the extensor pollicis brevis, cross over the wrist extensors (muscles which straighten the wrist). It presents as pain and crepitus (grating sensation) over the radial (thumb side) and dorsal (back) aspect of the wrist and is typically the result of repetitive flexion and extension movements of the wrist.
