Figure 1: A well-defined bluish mass on the right knee (arrows).

Mentions: An 18-year-old Thai woman came to our outpatient clinic with a lump on her right knee. The mass had first been noticed 1 year before and had grown slowly without regression. She complained of tenderness on palpation. A history of local preceding trauma had been noted. The patient had gone to another hospital prior to this visit and a needle aspiration had been performed without and content being obtained from the procedure. Her medical history was unremarkable. Physical examination revealed a solitary well-defined bluish mass, approximately 5.0 × 3.0 × 0.5 cm in size, with firm consistency located on the right knee (fig. 1).
