Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz C. Jalmn / F / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Sane.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Ring Finger.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the left ring finger since 3-4 years.
M.R.I of the left ring finger was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted, T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) and STIR sagittal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) coronal images.
There is a well-defined, lesion in the region of the nailbed of the left ring finger which measures approximately 2.0 x 4.0 x 1.6 mms (se/im 103/4, 104/4, 105/4). This lesion is slightly hyperintense to the muscles on the T1 Weighted images and turns homogeneously hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images. There is scalloping of the dorsal aspect of the distal phalynx of the left ring finger.
The rest of the visualized ligaments of the left ring finger are unremarkable. There is no bony destruction seen.
The MRI features are suggestive of a lesion in the region of the nailbed of the left ring finger measuring approximately 2.0 x 4.0 x 1.6 mms. This would most likely represent a glomus tumor.
An inclusion epidermoid can be considered as a differential diagnosis.
