  Purpose

Some studies valued the effectiveness of botulinum toxin. Results are contradictory and we need more studies. The purpose of the study is to compare the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injection with placebo in the treatment of tennis elbow unrelieved by usual medical care performed during 6 months. Method : It is a double blind randomized controlled trial. Principal criteria of assessment is Pain intensity three months after injection.
