MINOTTO, Renan; RODRIGUES, Camila Britto; GRILL, Aline Barcellos  and  FURIAN, Roque. Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath: a rare periungual location simulating myxoid cyst. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2017, vol.92, n.1, pp.121-123. ISSN 1806-4841.

Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath is a benign soft tissue tumor most frequent between the third and fifth decades of life. It can mimic and make differential diagnoses with several hand tumors. Definitive diagnosis and the treatment of choice are reached with complete resection and histopathological examination. Here we describe a case with clinical presentation similar to that of a myxoid cyst.

Keywords : Finger phalanges; Nails; Neoplasms; Synovial cyst.
