Elbow, tennis: A painful injury to the tendon that is attached to the outer part of the elbow due to repetitive twisting of the wrist or forearm which causes irritation and inflammation of the extensor tendon.

Any action that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist or forearm such as using a screwdriver can lead to this injury.
