Giant Cell Tumour of Tendon Sheath in Thumb—A Case Report  [PDF]
Sankar Rao. P, Siddaram Patil, Sandeep Reddy
Open Journal of Orthopedics (OJO) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojo.2014.44019
Abstract: Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath is the second most common tumor of the hand often referred to as xanthoma. Histologically these tumors are composed of multinucleated giant cells, polyhedral histiocytes, fibrosis and hemosiderin deposits. Marginal excision of giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath is the treatment of choice. We present a case of xanthoma of flexor pollicis longus tendon presented as a single enlarging mass in volar aspect of left thumb. After clinical diagnosis, work-up is done with ultrasound, FNAC and excision biopsy.
Tendon injuries of the hand

World Journal of Orthopedics , 2012, DOI: 10.5312/wjo.v3.i6.62
Abstract: Tendon injuries are the second most common injuries of the hand and therefore an important topic in trauma and orthopedic patients. Most injuries are open injuries to the flexor or extensor tendons, but less frequent injuries, e.g., damage to the functional system tendon sheath and pulley or dull avulsions, also need to be considered. After clinical examination, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging have proved to be important diagnostic tools. Tendon injuries mostly require surgical repair, dull avulsions of the distal phalanges extensor tendon can receive conservative therapy. Injuries of the flexor tendon sheath or single pulley injuries are treated conservatively and multiple pulley injuries receive surgical repair. In the postoperative course of flexor tendon injuries, the principle of early passive movement is important to trigger an “intrinsic” tendon healing to guarantee a good outcome. Many substances were evaluated to see if they improved tendon healing; however, little evidence was found. Nevertheless, hyaluronic acid may improve intrinsic tendon healing.

Abstract: the authors report the morphological description of equine digital tendon sheath, its functions, how its synovial fluid is produced, and the importance of such study.
An unusual case of cycticercosis of the tendon sheath of the tendoachilles.

Abstract: Cysticercosis is an infection by the larval stage (cystcercus cellulosae) of the cestode, Taenia Solium (pork tape worm), especially in those individuals who live in the endemic areas. After gaining entry into the body, the larvae become encysted and may lie in subcutaneous tissue, striated muscle, the vitreous humor, or other tissues. We report an unusual case of cysticercosis of the the tendon sheath of the tendoachilles that presented as a swelling of the tendoachilles. Upon Fine Needle Aspiration and Cytology (FNAC) that were conducted preoperatively, the possibility of villonodular synovitis was identified. However, the cysticercosis diagnosis was confirmed later after an excisional biopsy was performed. We could find no reports in the literature concerning an occurrence of cysticercosis in the tendon sheath of tendoachilles.
Giant cell tumor of the flexor tendon sheath of the hand

Abstract: Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath (GCTTS) is a slowly progressing benign tumor arising from synovial cells of tendon sheaths. We report a case of GCTTS of the right ring finger in a forty year old female patient. Radiograph shows soft tissue globular swelling of the right ring finger with scalloping of the middle phalanx and irregular cortical outline with extrinsic soft tissue impression of the proximal phalanx due to pressure effect by the tumor. No evidence of soft tissue calcification is seen. Biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of Giant cell tumor of tendon sheath.
Características físico-químicas e citológicas do líquido sinovial da bainha tendínea digital de eqüinos

Arquivo Brasileiro de Medicina Veterinária e Zootecnia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-09352005000300002
Abstract: physical, biochemical and cytological characteristics of the digital flexor tendon sheath synovial fluid were studied in nine clinically normal horses. it is a viscous, pale yellow, clear fluid, without flocculent material and does not clot at room temperature. its hyaluronic acid mean concentration was 60.20mg/dl, glucose levels were similar to the plasmatic levels, and its protein concentration was up to 1.74g/dl, with mean albumin:globulin ratio of 0.94. nucleated cells mean number was 313 cells/μl, with predominating large mononuclear cells and lymphocytes. there was a significant correlation (r= -0.649, p<0.01) between increasing hyaluronic acid concentration and decreasing lymphocyte counts. equine digital tendon sheath synovial fluids can be easily evaluated, being feasible in clinical and surgical routine, and the information may be useful to the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of animals with tendon sheath associated lesions.
Fibroma of tendon sheath located within the ankle joint capsule
Riccardo Ciatti,Pier Paolo Mariani
Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology , 2009, DOI: 10.1007/s10195-009-0058-2
Abstract: We report a very rare case of fibroma of the tendon sheath arising from the anteromedial ankle joint capsule, with no apparent connection to any tendon in the area, found in a 58-year-old patient complaining of progressive local swelling. This uncommon tumor has its usual localization in tendon sheaths, is extremely rare in joint capsules, and has never been described in this location previously. MRI showed nonuniform low signal intensity in T1- and T2-weighted images and high intensity in STIR images. The mass was completely excised by open surgery. Histopathological analysis later confirmed the diagnosis of a fibroma of the tendon sheath.

Abstract: Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the tendon sheath is the second most common tumor of the hand. GCT is placed locally and characterized by slow growth and benign nature. GCT of the finger is usually localized and not diffuse in the palmar area. We present here a 20-year-old man with a rare case of tendon sheath’s giant cell tumor in the second finger volar surface of the right hand with palmar area invasion.
The Occupational Diseases and Countermeasures of Pianists  [PDF]

Abstract: Piano performance is a combination of physical and mental exercise. If there is no correct playing habit or good playing method, it is easy to lead to diseases which are called occupational diseases medically. These occupational diseases will directly affect the pianists’ performance state or even make them unable to play. This paper analyses the causes of tenosynovitis, ligament strain, thumb disease, neuromuscular pain and shoulder neuritis or neuralgia, and explains the methods of reducing or eliminating the diseases combining with cases, in the hope of giving some help to piano-playing patients with their occupational diseases.
A Case Series of Various Swelling of Fingers in Adults  [PDF]

Abstract: Patients commonly present to their general practitioner with swellings of the hand. These include a variety of diagnoses with certain lesions (for example, ganglion) being more common than others. Some may even be familiar as they are often site-specific. This article aims to provide general practitioners with clear and concise information regarding swellings to be ruled out before suspecting giant cell tumor of tendon sheath. Swellings of the hand are commonly encountered in a general practice with different diagnosis. They may arise from any tissue in the hand including skin, subcutaneous fat, muscle, nerves, vessels, tendon, bone and cartilage. Fortunately, most are benign, asymptomatic and may not require surgical intervention. Ganglions, epidermoid inclusion cysts, giant cell tumours of the tendon sheath, and swellings associated with arthropathy comprise the majority of lesion. This study includes 16 cases which are presented with similar history and presentation of finger swellings as that of giant cell tumor tendon sheath but the final diagnosis has varied.
