GANGLION CYST OF BONE. A Synovial Cyst, also known as Gideon’s Disease or Bible Bump, is a small, fluid-filled sac or pouch that develops over a tendon or joint on the top of the foot. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can lead to the development of these cysts… Intraosseous ganglion are rarely reported and occur mainly as carpal bone cysts. Intraosseous ganglion cysts are uncommon, juxtaarticular, and … She was treated effectively by curettage and autogenous cancellous bone grafting. Intraosseous ganglia are benign cystic lesions located in the subchondral bone. 2013; 52(4):529-532. Arthrosc Tech. Patients with this disorder are usually middle aged and present with mild, localized pain that is … Mitchell ME, Giza E, Sullivan MR. Cartilage transplantation techniques for talar cartilage lesions. There are cases of malignant bone tumors in the heel, but the incidence is even rarer than the benign ones. Orthopedics | ABSTRACT: An illustrative case report of intraosseous ganglion cyst is presented. On imaging studies, they present as well-demarcated uniloculated or multiloculated lytic defects with a thin rim of sclerotic bone. When sacs of fluid form inside an individual's joints, it is known as a subchondral bone cyst. J Foot Ankle Surg. Subchondral bone cysts (SBCs) are sacs filled with fluid that form inside of joints such as knees, hips, and shoulders. These tumors are diagnosed radiographically. The benign mass under the skin may or may not be painful. [1,2,3,4] A ganglion cyst of the lateral malleolus is a rare occurrence with only one report in the literature. Lui T. Arthroscopic curettage and bone grafting of bone cysts of the talar body.  We report a case of an intraosseous ganglion of the lateral malleolus with soft tissue swelling. 3 A ganglion cyst is a small sac of fluid that forms over a joint or tendon (tissue that connects muscle to bone). The size of the sac or cyst can change with activity and may disappear for some time, only to recur. The purpose of this article is to review the English language medical literature involving intraosseous ganglia and to report the rare finding of a histologically proven intraosseous ganglion found in the calcaneus. The sac is usually primarily filled with hyaluronic acid. 7,10 This lesion of the talus produced significant pain and was successfully treated with curettage and iliac crest bone graft. We present a case of recurrent intraosseous ganglion in the ankle of a 41-year-old female who had recurrence after initial surgery. The lesion was removed and the patient recovered uneventfully. Intraosseous ganglion cysts are rare. A case of an intraosseous ganglion cyst 1,6 of the talus is described. radiographic similarity to a bone cyst has accounted for under diagnosis of intraosseous lipoma.2,3 Intraosseous lipomas are derived from mature lipocytes mostly seen at the metaphysis of the long bones in men.5,6 Foot and heel pain are the common symptoms of calcaneal intraosseous lipoma.5 treatment with curettage and autogenous bone Frozen section diagnosis of the lesion was an intraosseous epidermoid inclusion cyst. Inside the cyst is a thick, sticky, clear, colorless, jellylike material. Lui T. Arthroscopic bone grafting of talar bone cyst using posterior ankle arthroscopy. Intraosseous Lipoma; Osteoid Osteoma; Unicameral Bone Cyst; All three of these tumors are benign. 2017; 6(1): e7-e13. Intraosseous ganglion cysts of the ankle are relatively uncommon. 1,9 Ganglion cysts within bone are not rare but are usually found within long bones located in metaphyseal areas. Intraosseous ganglia are rare lesions of bone seen in the metaphyses or epiphyses of long bones. What is a Synovial Cyst? Although it has been reported that an unduly large number of phalangeal cysts have been treated by amputation, the judicious use of intraoperative frozen sections can prevent this scenario.
