de Berker D, Lawrence C. Ganglion of the distal interphalangeal joint (myxoid cyst): therapy by identification and repair of the leak of joint fluid. Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(5):607-610.
De Berker and Lawrence present an innovative, minimally traumatic, surgical treatment of digital myxoid cysts (DMCs). Traditionally, these benign lesions, also considered ganglions of the distal interphalangeal joint (DIPJ), have been treated by puncture and drainage, cryosurgery, and surgical excision, all with varying cure rates.
