WRIST - Ganglion

This is a cylindrical ganglion some 4.0 cm and 1.0 cm in diameter.
This man presented in October 1978 with a ganglion on the back of his left wrist. This was removed. In November 1980 a recurrent ganglion together with a second ganglion distal to this in the region of the extensor expansion was aspirated. In July 1982 one of these ganglions recurred and was excised. In June 1983 this specimen was excised as a recurrent ganglion.
