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 3. Clinical image (A). Polarized light dermoscopy without compression showing linear branched and serpentine vessels arranged from the periphery to the center (B). Translucent aspect upon polarized light dermoscopy with compression, with presence of bright white structures (C). (Copyright: ©2014 Salerni et al.)

Mentions: A 54-year-old female presented with a 6-month history of a solitary, fluctuant, painful nodule, with a diameter of 8 mm located the dorsal side of the fourth finger of the right hand, on the DIP joint (Figure 3A). Polarized light dermoscopy without compression (Figure 3B) revealed the presence of linear branched and serpentine vessels arranged from the periphery to the center; without compression (Figure 3C) the lesion turned translucent with bright white structures and vascular pattern became almost invisible.
