digital mucous cyst

digital mucous cyst
a nodular lesion usually over a distal finger joint, consisting of mucinous degeneration of the collagen of the dermis; it is not a true cyst, because it lacks an epithelial wall and does not communicate with the underlying area of the synovial capsule. Called also myxoid c., synovial c., and synovial ganglion.
