Ganglions of the proximal interphalangeal joint.
Ganglions of the proximal interphalangeal joint are uncommon. Six patients (nine ganglions) were treated surgically. The lesions presented on the ulnar aspect of the extensor mechanism between the lateral band and the central slip and communicated with the joint by means of a stalk. Mild degenerative joint disease was noted in each case. Surgical excision provided relief of symptoms, and no patient has experienced any recurrence to date.
