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.

ABSTRACT
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.

Mentions: Histologically, there are two types of digital mucous cysts. The myxomatous, or superficial, type is located near the proximal nail fold and tends to fluctuate and resemble the focal mucinosis. The ganglion, or deep type, is located on the dorsum of a finger near the DIP joint and is analogous to the ganglion [5]. Histologically, digital mucous cysts do not have an epithelial lining (Figure 4A); so, the term cyst, although commonly accepted, is a misnomer.
