Abstract:Ganglionic and synovial cysts of articular joints are the most common benign soft tissue tumours in the hand and the wrist. Although used synonymously, the histology and pathogenesis are different. In the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), ganglionic and synovial cysts are very rare. We describe a case and present a review of the literature.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
