Synovial Cyst on Finger?


A synovial cyst on the finger is a fluid filled area that is located in the synovial joint. It is a tissue mass of the adjacent joint, caused by leakage of fluid from the joint into the surrounding tissue. These cysts often appear clinically with osteoarthritic symptoms and are a red or bluish colour, producing a gelatinous material if punctured. The cyst can be linked to the joint by injection of methylene blue; however, more recently, surgical techniques have been developed. Common treatments consist of injection of corticosteroids, repeated puncture and drainage of the cyst, or surgical excision.
