Intersection syndrome

Tenosynovitis of extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL), and extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB).

The tendons of first compartment (APL & EPB) pass superficially obliquely over ECRL and ECRB in the 2nd compartment at musculotendinous junction. This intersection occurs dorsoradially at the junction of the middle and distal thirds of the forearm, just proximal to the extensor retinaculum.
