Bone change after surgical treatment of mucous cyst at the interphalangeal joint of the great toe in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.

Mod Rheumatol 2016 Jul 13:1-4. Epub 2016 Jul 13.

a Department of Orthopaedic Surgery , Hirosaki University Graduate School of Medicine , Hirosaki , Japan.

Digital mucous cysts are a type of benign cysts of the digits, typically located at the distal interphalangeal joints or in the proximal nail fold, which usually occur on the hands. The diagnosis of digital mucous cysts is relatively easy because of its light-transmitting property, but the treatment is often difficult because of complications including recurrence, infection, diminished range of motion, and nail deformity. We report a case of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) showing good course after surgical treatment of mucous cyst at the interphalangeal joint of the great toe. Read More

Veterans Affairs Hospital & SUNY Downstate, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

There is little discussion of tumors arising in the digits in the dermatology literature. The patient with an undifferentiated mass of the finger is frequently encountered in the clinic, and variances in presentation of common and uncommon entities pose a challenge that may prompt further investigation for proper diagnosis and treatment. In this review, the authors illustrate the approach and work-up of an unknown digit mass of a 45-year-old female patient. Read More

Hospital Provincial del Centenario de Rosario, Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina ; Diagnóstico Médico Oroño, Rosario, Argentina.

Digital mucous cysts are benign ganglion cysts of the digits typically located on the dorsal aspect of the interphalangeal joint and distal phalanx of the digits. Usually the clinical diagnosis is straightforward, though sometimes it may mimic other lesions and diagnosis becomes a challenge. We present a series of three digital mucous cysts with a repeatable dermoscopic pattern consisted of linear branched and serpentine vessels when no compression is applied and translucent aspect with white bright areas and loss of vascular pattern when compression is applied.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2015 11;49(4):189-90. Epub 2014 Nov 11.

Pulvertaft Hand Centre, Royal Derby Hospital , Derby , UK.

Mucous cysts of the fingers are benign ganglionic lesions arising generally from the distal interphalangeal joint that are more frequent between the fifth and seventh decades. They are usually asymptomatic; however, in certain cases such as pain or when the overlying skin is excessively attenuated, leading to breakdown and oozing of synovial fluid and potential risk of infection, surgical excision is recommended. In the present article a technique to excise the cyst while preserving its overlying attenuated skin is presented. Read More

Giant dacryocystocele and congenital alacrimia in lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2013 May-Jun;29(3):e67-8

Department of Ophthalmology, Otorhinolaryngology, and Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

The lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome, also known as Levy-Hollister syndrome, is a rare multiple congenital dysplasia characterized by malformation of the lacrimal apparatus and by aural, dental, and digital anomalies. Since the first report in 1973, different clinical findings such as urogenital malformations and facial dysmorphism have been described in the affected patients, showing that the phenotypic spectrum of the syndrome is broad. The authors report for the first time an association among giant dacryocystocele, alacrima, and agenesis of the lacrimal puncta in a patient with lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome. Read More

Segmentation of epithelium in H&E stained odontogenic cysts.

J Microsc 2011 Dec 4;244(3):273-92. Epub 2011 Oct 4.

Department of Computer Science, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

An algorithm for the automated segmentation of epithelial tissue in digital images of histologic tissue sections of odontogenic cysts (cysts originating from residual odontogenic epithelium) is presented. The algorithm features an image standardization process that greatly reduces variation in luminance and chrominance between images due to variations in sample preparation. Segmentation of the epithelial regions of images uses an algorithm based on binary graph cuts where graph weights depend on probabilities obtained from colour histogram models of epithelium and stroma image regions.

Purpose: To assess the prevalence of radiographic signs of maxillary sinus pathology in patients undergoing dental implant treatment and to compare the efficacy of panoramic radiography, computed tomography (CT), and three-dimensional (3D) CT with Implametric software in the diagnosis of sinus pathology.

Materials And Methods: Thirty patients were selected at random from those being treatment-planned to receive implant-supported restorations in the maxilla and who had a panoramic radiograph, a conventional CT scan in acetate, and a 3D CT scan in digital format.

Mucinous carcinomas of the breast, so-called colloid carcinomas, exhibit better prognoses than their nonmucinous breast counterparts. This biological difference exhibited by mucinous breast carcinomas prompted us to examine the relationship of mucin expression to colloid carcinoma histogenesis. We studied 50 colloid carcinomas, 50 noncolloid cancers, and 50 normal breasts by hematoxylin-eosin (H&E) and Alcian blue staining, mucin immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization with a battery of MUC riboprobes, and ancillary digital image analysis.

Eighteen patients with digital mucoid cysts and 31 with myxoid cysts of the oral mucosa were treated by cryosurgery using an intermittent spray technique. Double freeze-thaw cycle (FTC) is recommended for successful treatment of digital mucoid cysts, as the recurrence rate was fairly high when only a single FTC was used. This does not necessarily apply to oral mucous cysts, where the cure rate was nearly 100%, whether a single or double FTC was used. Read More
