Fibroma of extensor digitorum tendon sheath in 27yr old male patient: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Siddaram Patil N, Dr. Sagar K and Dr. Sai Ram
Abstract: Fibroma of tendon sheath was first described by Geschickter and Copeland in 1949 (1), but was not formally documented as a clinicopathologic entity until Chung and Enzinger's superb series of 138 cases was published in 1979 (2). These lesions not infrequently present to the dermatologist as small subcutaneous nodules. This tumor has received little attention in the dermatological literature anti as dermatologists play an increasingly important role in the surgical management of cutaneous and subcutaneous tumors the entity deserves wider recognition. The importance of suggesting the diagnosis clinically is that although most are histologically bland ant obviously benign, more cellular lesions may he misinterpreted as malignant. The differential diagnosis is briefly discussed.
