Tenosynovium is a relatively common ditzel.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Stenosing tenosynovitis directs here.
- Uncommon pathology specimen.
- May cause trigger finger.
- Dense connective tissue (tendon).
- +/-Psammoma bodies.
- CD68 +ve.
- Beta-catenin -ve.
- Immunostains are usually not required for the diagnosis.
Tenosynovium, Left Wrist, Excision: - Dense connective tissue (consistent with tendon) with degenerative changes and lymphohistiocytic infiltrate. - NEGATIVE for apparent giant cells and NEGATIVE for calcification. - NEGATIVE for malignancy.
TENOSYNOVIUM, LEFT MIDDLE FINGER, EXCISION: - DENSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE (CONSISTENT WITH TENDON) WITH LYMPHOHISTIOCYTIC INFILTRATE. - NEGATIVE FOR GIANT CELLS. - NEGATIVE FOR MALIGNANCY.
The sections show dense connective tissue (tendon) containing a cluster of cells with indistinct cellular borders, abundant foamy grey cytoplasm, and round/oval pale-staining nuclei with small nucleoli (histiocytes). The cell cluster has a small number of interspersed lymphocytes, and the centre of the cell cluster has acellular hyaline material (degenerative tendon).
No calcification is identified. No giant cells are seen.
No nuclear atypia is apparent and no mitotic activity is appreciated.
The sections show dense connective tissue (tendon) containing rare histiocytes and lymphocytes. No calcification is identified. No giant cells are seen. No nuclear atypia is apparent and no mitotic activity is appreciated.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tenosynovium with edema or fibrosis +/-myxoid degeneration
Tenosynovium, Excision: - Benign fibroconnective tissue with focal myxoid changes without significant inflammation. - NEGATIVE for evidence of malignancy.
