Both of the following conditions would have local epicondyle tenderness.
Lateral epicondyle: tennis elbow.
Pain is triggered by resisted wrist extension, because the forearm extensors are affected and this exertion induces tenderness.
Medial epicondyle: golfer’s elbow.
Conversely, pain is triggered by resisted wrist flexion.
