Three topics are reviewed: iliopsoas bursitis (IPB), iliotibial band frictional syndrome (ITBFS), and Achilles tendinopathy. Although not frequently diagnosed, IPB may be more prevalent than what is commonly thought. Several excellent review articles are presented. Imaging studies are usually needed for confirmation of the diagnosis, and a report on magnetic resonance imaging is presented. Successful treatment of IPB with home exercise is reviewed. Because an increasing number of people are exercising, there is an increasing need to know the syndromes that can result from overuse, such as ITBFS. Several articles on the use of diagnostic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging to aid in the confirmation of this entity are reviewed; one article explores the pathology of ITBFS in a cadaveric study. In the section of the treatment of ITBFS the authors review one article on exercise and one on surgery. Use of ultrasound to aid in the diagnosis of Achilles tendinopathy is reviewed, as well as risk factors related to developing it. Two articles on surgical treatment are reviewed.
