Dermatoscopic pattern of digital mucous cyst: report of three cases.

Salerni G, González R, Alonso C - Dermatol Pract Concept (2014)

Bottom Line: 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.

Case 2. Clinical image (A). Polarized light dermoscopy without compression revealed thick linear branched vessels running from the periphery and crossing the center of the lesion (B). Dermoscopic aspect using polarized light dermoscopy with compression, translucent aspect with presence of bright white structures (C). (Copyright: ©2014 Salerni et al.)

Mentions: A 27-year-old male consulted because of a solitary fluctuant nodule of 6 mm, which appeared 8 months prior to consultation, located in the dorsum of the second toe, between DIP joint and the proximal nail fold (Figure 2A). Upon polarized light dermoscopy examination without compression (Figure 2B) thick linear branched vessels running from the periphery and crossing the center of the lesion were observed, with compression (Figure 2C) the lesion turned translucent and whitish with bright white structures.
