Prepatellar septic bursitis: a case report of skin necrosis associated with open bursectomy.

Patients with prepatellar septic bursitis are typically successfully managed nonoperatively with rest, compression, immobilization, aspiration, and antibiotics. Rarely, surgical excision of the bursa may be required for recalcitrant cases. Prepatellar bursectomy, however, has been associated with considerable risk of surgical-site morbidity.
