Nodular tumor-like lesions or mucoid flesh, arising from tendon sheaths, LIGAMENTS, or JOINT CAPSULE, especially of the hands, wrists, or feet. They are not true cysts as they lack epithelial wall. They are distinguished from SYNOVIAL CYSTS by the lack of communication with a joint cavity or the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE.
Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance. A synovial cyst can develop from any joint, but most commonly at the back of the knee, where it is known as POPLITEAL CYST.
Any fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM. Cysts can be of normal, abnormal, non-neoplastic, or neoplastic tissues.
Benign unilocular lytic areas in the proximal end of a long bone with well defined and narrow endosteal margins. The cysts contain fluid and the cyst walls may contain some giant cells. Bone cysts usually occur in males between the ages 3-15 years.

Anterior cruciate ligament ganglion: case report. (1/66)

CONTEXT: A ganglion is a cystic formation close to joints or tendinous sheaths, frequently found in the wrist, foot or knee. Intra-articular ganglia of the knee are rare, and most of them are located in the anterior cruciate ligament. The clinical picture for these ganglia comprises pain and movement restrictions in the knee, causing significant impairment to the patient. Symptoms are non-specific, and anterior cruciate ligament ganglia are usually diagnosed through magnetic resonance imaging or arthroscopy. Not all ganglia diagnosed through magnetic resonance imaging need to undergo surgical treatment: only those that cause clinical signs and symptoms do. Surgical results are considered good or excellent in the vast majority of cases. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old male presented with pain in the left knee during a marathon race. Physical examination revealed limitation in the maximum range of knee extension and pain in the posterior aspect of the left knee. Radiographs of the left knee were normal, but magnetic resonance imaging revealed a multi-lobed cystic structure adjacent to the anterior cruciate ligament, which resembled a ganglion cyst. The mass was removed through arthroscopy, and pathological examination revealed a synovial cyst. Patient recovery was excellent, and he resumed his usual training routine five months later.  (+info)

A locus on mouse chromosome 6 that determines resistance to herpes simplex virus also influences reactivation, while an unlinked locus augments resistance of female mice. (2/66)

During studies to determine a role for tumor necrosis factor (TNF) in herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection using TNF receptor null mutant mice, we discovered a genetic locus, closely linked to the TNF p55 receptor (Tnfrsf1a) gene on mouse chromosome 6 (c6), that determines resistance or susceptibility to HSV-1. We named this locus the herpes resistance locus, Hrl, and showed that it also mediates resistance to HSV-2. Hrl has at least two alleles, Hrl(r), expressed by resistant strains like C57BL/6 (B6), and Hrl(s), expressed by susceptible strains like 129S6 (129) and BALB/c. Although Hrl is inherited as an autosomal dominant gene, resistance to HSV-1 is strongly sex biased such that female mice are significantly more resistant than male mice. Analysis of backcrosses between resistant B6 and susceptible 129 mice revealed that a second locus, tentatively named the sex modifier locus, Sml, functions to augment resistance of female mice. Besides determining resistance, Hrl is one of several genes involved in the control of HSV-1 replication in the eye and ganglion. Remarkably, Hrl also affects reactivation of HSV-1, possibly by interaction with some unknown gene(s). We showed that Hrl is distinct from Cmv1, the gene that determines resistance to murine cytomegalovirus, which is encoded in the major NK cell complex just distal of p55 on c6. Hrl has been mapped to a roughly 5-centimorgan interval on c6, and current efforts are focused on obtaining a high-resolution map for Hrl.  (+info)

A case of extensor digitorum brevis manus. (3/66)

The extensor digitorum brevis manus (EDBM), a relatively rare anomalous muscle on the dorsal hand, may be misdiagnosed as a ganglion, a synovial nodule or cyst, or a soft-tissue tumor. MRI scans can help to distinguish EDBM from tumors. EDBM should be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses on the dorsal aspect of the hand.  (+info)

Leiomyoma of the hand mimicking a pearl ganglion. (4/66)

Leiomyomas rarely occur in the hand. To our knowledge, there have been no reports of a leiomyoma of the hand mimicking a pearl ganglion in the English literature. We report such a case with a leiomyoma of the right third finger in a 59-year-old woman. The tumor was excised together with the underlying sheet of tissue. The pathology revealed that the tumor was linked to the underlying structure of a vascular wall by a stalk of tumor tissue. This report serves to remind clinicians to include leiomyoma in the differential diagnosis when encountering a 'ganglion-like lesion'. Also, this report demonstrates the link between a leiomyoma and its underlying origin.  (+info)

The role of Pax2 in mouse inner ear development. (5/66)

The paired box transcription factor, Pax2, is important for cochlear development in the mouse inner ear. Two mutant alleles of Pax2, a knockout and a frameshift mutation (Pax21Neu), show either agenesis or severe malformation of the cochlea, respectively. In humans, mutations in the PAX2 gene cause renal coloboma syndrome that is characterized by kidney abnormalities, optic nerve colobomas and mild sensorineural deafness. To better understand the role of Pax2 in inner ear development, we examined the inner ear phenotype in the Pax2 knockout mice using paint-fill and gene expression analyses. We show that Pax2-/- ears often lack a distinct saccule, and the endolymphatic duct and common crus are invariably fused. However, a rudimentary cochlea is always present in all Pax2 knockout inner ears. Cochlear outgrowth in the mutants is arrested at an early stage due to apoptosis of cells that normally express Pax2 in the cochlear anlage. Lack of Pax2 affects tissue specification within the cochlear duct, particularly regions between the sensory tissue and the stria vascularis. Because the cochlear phenotypes observed in Pax2 mutants are more severe than those observed in mice lacking Otx1 and Otx2, we postulate that Pax2 plays a key role in regulating the differential growth within the cochlear duct and thus, its proper outgrowth and coiling.  (+info)

Unusual localization of multiple myxoid (mucous) cysts of toes. (6/66)

Myxoid cysts of fingers and toes are observed frequently on the lateral or dorsal aspects of the distal digits. They are usually solitary nodules. Both subungual localization and multiplicity are quite rare. We present a 74-year-old woman with digital subungual mucous cysts located on all toes.  (+info)

Drosophila Grainyhead specifies late programmes of neural proliferation by regulating the mitotic activity and Hox-dependent apoptosis of neuroblasts. (7/66)

The Drosophila central nervous system is generated by stem-cell-like progenitors called neuroblasts. Early in development, neuroblasts switch through a temporal series of transcription factors modulating neuronal fate according to the time of birth. At later stages, it is known that neuroblasts switch on expression of Grainyhead (Grh) and maintain it through many subsequent divisions. We report that the function of this conserved transcription factor is to specify the regionalised patterns of neurogenesis that are characteristic of postembryonic stages. In the thorax, Grh prolongs neural proliferation by maintaining a mitotically active neuroblast. In the abdomen, Grh terminates neural proliferation by regulating the competence of neuroblasts to undergo apoptosis in response to Abdominal-A expression. This study shows how a factor specific to late-stage neural progenitors can regulate the time at which neural proliferation stops, and identifies mechanisms linking it to the Hox axial patterning system.  (+info)

Ganglion cyst of the anterior cruciate ligament: a case report. (8/66)

A ganglion is a cystic swelling that usually arises close to tendons or joints. Its occurrence inside a joint is rare, and its diagnosis is usually incidental during magnetic resonance imaging or arthroscopy. It may be painful or asymptomatic. Some patients may have a trauma history. Ganglia may mimic intra-articular lesions like tears of the anterior cruciate ligament or meniscus. Magnetic resonance imaging is the investigation of choice for diagnosis. Ganglia commonly arise from the anterior cruciate ligament, but can also arise from other structures such as the posterior cruciate ligament or meniscus. Ganglia are typically treated by arthroscopic excision and debridement. We report a case of ganglion cyst of the anterior cruciate ligament in a 16-year-old man.  (+info)

Wrist ganglion cysts will many times rupture on their own due to continued pressure to this area from activity approximately 60% of the time. This is a normal and safe occurrence that can lead to temporary resolution of pain and other symptoms. Because the lining of this fluid filled membrane still remains, fluid will once again return bringing on a return of symptoms. Aspirations (draining of fluid via a needle) can be another alternative to remove the fluid and a corticosteroid can be injected into the cyst. This again can lead to recurrence of the ganglion cyst in about 50% of cases. If recurrence continues, surgical intervention through arthroscopy or a mini-open procedure can be done to remove the fluid as well as remove the lining of the membrane. This results in a better overall outcome with recurrence in 10-40% of cases.. ...

My experience has been that ganglion cysts - especially those that occur in the wrist area - tend to arise due to underlying joint dysfunction. All of your joint surfaces are cushioned by a layer of tissue called synovial lining, as well as by liquid called synovial fluid.. If the joints in your wrist region are not moving properly and/or under constant strain, the synovial lining in this area can get irritated to a point where it begins to get squeezed out from between your wrist bones, creating a pouch-like appearance below the surface of your skin. Synovial fluid follows an outpouching as it develops, leading to a fluid-filled bump. Many years ago, ganglion cysts were also called Bible bumps because the standard treatment for such bumps involved having ones doctor slam down on it with a heavy book, usually a Bible.. Smashing a ganglion cyst may cause it to break apart or shrink, but without addressing the root cause of a cyst, it will usually return over time; this is also true of cysts that ...

Ganglion cysts are common fluid filled lumps that form next to joints or tendons. Although they often feel firm like a solid object, they are actually filled with the thick fluid that lubricates the associated joint or tendon. Ganglions are not really tumors and do not generally damage the surrounding tissues. Most of the problems associated with ganglions are related to the pressure they apply on their surroundings and the associated discomfort.. Although they can occur almost anywhere, certain locations in the upper extremity are extremely common. Around the back or palm side of the wrist, grape-sized cysts are common to see in children and young adults. On the palm side of the fingers, small, BB-sized cysts can sometimes form on the tunnel that covers the tendons that bend the fingers (the flexor tendon sheath). These are generally located at the end of the sheath where the finger attaches to the hand. A specific variety of ganglion cyst, sometimes referred to as a mucous or myxoid cyst, is ...

Treatment can often be non-surgical. In many cases, these cysts can simply be observed, especially if they are painless, as they frequently disappear spontaneously. If the cyst becomes painful, limits activity, or is otherwise unacceptable, several treatment options are available. The use of splints and anti-inflammatory medication can be prescribed in order to decrease pain associated with activities. An aspiration can be performed to remove the fluid from the cyst and decompress it. This requires placing a needle into the cyst, which can be performed in most office settings. Aspiration is a very simple procedure, but recurrence of the cyst is common. If non-surgical options fail to provide relief or if the cyst recurs, surgical alternatives are available. Surgery involves removing the cyst along with a portion of the joint capsule or tendon sheath (see Figure 3). In the case of wrist ganglion cysts, both traditional open and arthroscopic techniques usually yield good results. Surgical ...

A ganglion cyst (also known as a bible bump) is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand. The exact cause of the formation of ganglion cysts is still unknown but they are thought to be due to a degeneration of the fibrous tissue surrounding joints leading to a cystic structure. They occur most often in the 20-60 age group and are three times more common in females. They are benign but need to be differentiated from more serious conditions. They contain clear fluid similar to synovial fluid (a clear, lubricating, viscous fluid found in the synovial cavity of joints). One traditional method of treating a ganglion cyst was to strike the lump with a large, heavy book. And since even the poorest households usually possessed a Bible, that was what they used, which is how ganglion cysts came to be nicknamed Bible Bumps or sometimes Gideons Disease. This method of treatment is no longer recommended as patients risk damage to the surrounding area. ...

On top of that, I had a cortisone shot a few weeks ago. I needed to have a ganglion cyst removed from my wrist.

2020 AWARD WINNER Introduction: Subspine hip impingement, or anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) impingement, has been described as impingement or abnormal contact between the AIIS and the anterior and inferior portion of the femoral neck during hip movement, which may result in compression of the capsule, labrum, rectus femoris, and iliocapsularis muscles. This impingement occurs with activities that require movements in forced flexion and internal rotation of the hip. AIIS deformities may result from excessive bone formation after avulsion injury of the rectus femoris or a morphologic variant, may cause hip dysfunction, and may benefit from surgical management. Purpose: This video shows the gross anatomy of the anterior hip, including the osseous structures, muscles, tendons, capsule, and acetabular labrum, at rest and during movement in hip flexion. In addition, the video presents the outcomes of arthroscopic decompression of subspine hip impingement. Methods: The video presents the gross anatomy
The arthroscopic resection of wrist ganglia is a sure technique, which allows a satisfactory resection of the cyst and of the adjacent articular capsule. The rate of recurrence does not seem as low as initially but stays in levels comparable to the best series of classical open techniques.

Nevertheless, the satisfaction rate of the patients is very high particularly because there is neither cutaneous suture, nor immobilization of the wrist ...

A 72-year-old man was admitted for recurrent episodes of chest pain 3 months after stent deployment in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. The patient underwent a computerized tomographic (CT) examination of the thorax with a multislice spiral CT scanner (MSCT) (Somatom Volume Zoom, Siemens). A dynamic study was performed with acquisition of 20 scans at the level of the LAD distal to the stented segment during injection of 20 mL of nonionic contrast medium (370 mgI/mL); the resultant time-density curves were suggestive of high-grade stenosis (Figure 1A). Thereafter, a cardiac CT scan with retrospective electrocardiographic gating and injection of 110 mL of contrast medium was performed. Axial images were reconstructed with an absolute delay of 400 ms before the next R-wave. Three-dimensional volume-rendered images were also obtained; 2 overlapping stents were identified in the mid LAD without lumen reduction at the margins (Figures 2A and 2B). Coronary angiography documented a ...
