Is there a name for the arm crease opposite of the elbow?

Aside from arm crease?

My kid keeps asking me what it's called and saying I'm wrong...

  • I can only find a name for what lies under the skin: Annular ligament of radius.

    Probably easier to say: Inside of your elbow.

  • It's the dirt catcher. Kids have dirt catchers on the opposite sides of their knees, too, and under their toes and fingernails.

  • Antecubital. like desert diva said. It's where medical vampires like to get your blood from. The AC space.
