epicondylitis, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow
Explanation:
lateral ep is tennis elbow, medial is golfer's - probably best to keep with the Latin term

dorland\'s medical dictionary:
\"epicondylitis (epi·con·dy·li·tis) (ep²[ibreve]-kon²d[schwa]-li¢tis) inflammation of the epicondyle or of the tissues adjoining the epicondyle of the humerus.\"

If you really want to keep it non-technical, \"inflammation of the elbow\" is vague enough to cover the options - but don\'t use in a medical context where the diagnosis matters.

  -> thanks - hadn't heard of that one

agree  MMUlr: with epicondylitis - as you mentioned: further differentiation is needed for Tennis-/Golferarm (see http://www.dr-gumpert.de/html/golferellenbogen.html ) But here only "epicondylitis" is asked for.
