Abstract:   (265 Views)
Ganglion cysts are the most common type of soft tissue tumors in the hands and wrists. When presented in rare locations, they might cause diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. In this report, we presented a case of a ganglion cyst in the thenar muscle of a 25-year-old woman that was located adjacent to the recurrent branch of the median nerve. It was removed with surgical excision. Six-month follow-up of the patient was event-free. This case suggests the inclusion of ganglion cysts in the differential diagnosis of the hand and wrist pathologies because late diagnosis could endanger the adjacent structures, such as the recurrent branch of the median nerve.
