Nonoperative treatment of an interosseous ganglion cyst

Abstract

Ganglion cysts of the knee are being reported more frequently secondary to an increased rate of magnetic resonance imaging studies. Although knee pain is the impetus for imaging, ganglion cysts are often incidental findings. Nonoperative treatment is a successful therapeutic option. We report a patient with variable pain presentations over the course of her treatment. The pattern of complaints pointed to different primary etiologies about the knee, but all were common to an interosseous ganglion cyst. A stepwise assessment and expansion of the differential diagnosis allowed for appropriate utilization of modalities and limited morbidity with nonoperative therapy.
