TENOSYNOVIAL GIANT CELL TUMOR OF HAND: A CASE REPORT
Dr. Mukesh Kumar and Dr. Ankit Panwar*
Tenosynovial giant cell tumors (TSGCT) or giant cell tumors of tendon sheath (GCTTS) are neoplasms that arise in the synovium. They are the most common form of giant cell tumors and second most common soft tissue tumor of the hand next to ganglion cyst. These tumors are more common in adults aged between 30–50 years and are more common in females. Magnetic resonance imaging is the diagnostic tool of choice for both diagnosis and treatment planning. The current standard treatment of choice is complete excision. The main concern about the treatment is related to the high recurrence rates. We present a case report of diagnosis and successful surgical management of a giant cell tumor over the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb of right hand of a 38 years old female.
