1/77. popliteal cyst accompanied by an intra-articular cartilage lesion in a child.

    The case of an 11-year-old girl presenting with a symptomatic popliteal cyst is described. There was no previous knee trauma nor could any inflammation be found. On MRI a concomitant retropatellar cartilage lesion had been detected preoperatively and was confirmed and treated by arthroscopy. The prevalence and treatment of popliteal cysts in children are discussed. Whereas in adults popliteal cysts are generally accompanied by intra-articular lesions, the presence of a concomitant intraarticular lesion in children is an extremely rare finding. We conclude that intraarticular lesions in the presence of popliteal cysts might have been underestimated as most of the studies regarding popliteal cysts in children were undertaken before the advent of arthroscopy, ultrasound, or MRI.

2/77. Posterior tibial neuropathy by a Baker's cyst: case report.

    Baker's cysts are rare cause of peripheral nerve entrapment and only a few cases of tibial nerve entrapment resulting from the popliteal cyst in the calf muscle have been reported in the literature. We present a case of rheumatoid arthritis complicated by a Baker's cyst with a tibial nerve entrapment. It is important to diagnose a Baker's cyst early and to differentiate it from thrombophlebitis, a popliteal aneurysm, tumor or muscle tear to effect optimal therapy and to obviate a potential neuropathy. Prompt recognition of these cases may save the patients unnecessary procedures and delay in treatment. ( info)

3/77. Pigmented villonodular synovitis of the knee presenting as a popliteal cyst.

    Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a locally aggressive tumor of the synovium of joints and tendon sheaths. It is commonly seen in the synovial lining of the flexor tendons of the hand and in the synovium of the knee and less commonly in other joints. A case of pigmented villonodular synovitis of the knee in a 60-year-old man, with an intra-articular origin extending extra-articularly, is presented. The interesting point is that the initial diagnosis was a Baker cyst. ( info)

4/77. Cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery: elongation into the media of the popliteal artery and communication with the knee joint capsule: report of a case.

    Cystic disease of the popliteal artery is a rare disorder in which most cases involve the formation of an adventitial cyst that disturbs the popliteal artery blood flow. We present herein the case of a patient presenting with popliteal artery occlusion due to compression by a cyst which formed at the media of the popliteal artery. The onset occurred during a baseball game in which he played catcher. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a communication of the cyst with the adjacent knee joint. This unusual case could provide important clues to help identify the pathogenesis of this disease. ( info)

5/77. Two-stage operation for treatment of a large dissecting popliteal cyst after failed total knee arthroplasty.

    A symptomatic popliteal cyst after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is rare, occurring most frequently as a result of intra-articular knee pathology. We present a case of a large dissecting popliteal cyst 7 years after TKA with symptoms of severe calf pain and functional disability. The symptomatic cyst was excised completely in a first-stage operation, and the severely worn TKA was corrected by a second-stage surgical procedure. The patient in this report was pain free and had satisfactory range of knee motion 5 years after the index revision TKA, without recurrence of effusion or popliteal cyst formation. ( info)

6/77. Synovial sarcoma arising in association with a popliteal cyst.

    Synovial sarcoma is a relatively common soft tissue sarcoma particularly in the adolescent and young adult. We report an unusual case of a synovial sarcoma arising within a popliteal cyst in a 13-year-old female presenting with bilateral popliteal cysts. MR imaging demonstrated the cyst with evidence of subacute haemorrhage and a discrete nodule of tumour. ( info)

7/77. Radiologic case study. Pigmented villonodular synovitis.

    Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a benign, locally aggressive disorder characterized by a unique clinical radiographic, and histopathologic presentation. While it is considered to be a rare disorder, a delay in diagnosis and treatment can potentially result in severe disruption of joint function due to subchondral invasion. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment should consist of complete synovectomy. recurrence is common, but malignant transformation is rare. The etiology of PVNS is still unknown, and perhaps its future discovery will assist in the definitive treatment of this disorder. ( info)

8/77. Intraneural ganglion of the peroneal nerve: importance of timely diagnosis.

    peroneal nerve ganglion cysts typically present because of a palpable mass or symptoms and signs of entrapment neuropathy, including pain, diminished sensation, and motor weakness. Surgical treatment is usually successful when performed early, but, when diagnosis is delayed, intraneural growth and invasion may cause irreversible axonal injury and footdrop. This case report illustrates the importance of timely diagnosis when treating a ganglion of the peroneal nerve and reviews the appropriate workup, differential diagnosis, and treatment. ( info)

9/77. Two cases of tibial nerve compression caused by uncommon popliteal cysts.

    We report 2 cases of a popliteal mass of very unusual origin that induced compression neuropathy. The signs and symptoms could have been mistaken for those of a common Baker's cyst. Several recent studies have shown that the cause of Baker's cyst formation should be sought within the joint because of a communication between the gastrocnemio-semimembranosus bursa and the joint cavity. These 2 cysts had no communication with the articular joint, thus suggesting that the surgeon perform an open exploration of the popliteal fossa in the search for other cystic formations with origins and features different from Baker's cysts.

10/77. Pseudothrombophlebitis in a patient with Behcet's syndrome: Doppler ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging findings.

    A 33-year-old man with a known diagnosis of Behcet's syndrome (BS), presented with pseudothrombophlebitis resulting from acute rupture of a popliteal cyst. Doppler ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging findings are explained. Differentiation of rupture of a Baker's cyst from true thrombophlebitis, especially in patients with BS, who are potentially susceptible to thrombotic events, is extremely important. ( info)
