Serous ischial bursa. Le Floch P.

Bull Assoc Anat (Nancy) 1982 Mar;66(192):89-94.

The ischial bursa (Bursa ischiatica) lies on the posterior aspect of the tuberosity of the ischium at the level of the origin of the hamstring muscles. Its relations with the inferior fibers of the musculus gluteus maximus vary with the degree of the hip’s flexion. Its role in the sitting position explains the specific bursitis when medullar lesions disturb the normal physiology of this posture.
