ABSTRACT A 17-year-old male presented to us following a hyperflexion injury to his right knee sustained while playing soccer. Immediately after the traumatic event, he developed a large, tense knee effusion. Physical examination revealed limited range of motion. MRI revealed a lobulated mass in the posteromedial aspect of the knee joint. The mass was excised and sections submitted to pathology. A pathologic, microscopic, and immunohistochemical characteristics revealed the final diagnosis of fibroma of tendon sheath in the knee. At 12 months followup, the patient reported no subjective symptoms, such as pain or limitation of athletic activities and has full range of motion. Additionally, he has demonstrated no signs of recurrence. We report a case of fibroma of the tendon sheath originating from the synovial membrane of the joint capsule of the knee.

    ABSTRACT: We report a rare case of fibroma of the tendon sheath in the knee. To our knowledge, only three previous cases of fibroma of the tendon sheath in the knee have been reported in the English literature. In our case, T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed a low intensity signal, T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging showed a mixed area of high and low signal intensity, and gadolinium-diethylene triaminepentaacetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging showed faint enhancement at the periphery of the lesion. Magnetic resonance imaging therefore was valid for detection of this intraarticular lesion. The lesion, which was located between the posterior capsule of the left knee and the posterior cruciate ligament, was excised arthroscopically.

    ABSTRACT: A report of a 65-year-old male with a tumor arising from synovial tissue of the radio-ulnar joint. On magnetic resonance imaging, the tumor was demonstrated as a heterogeneous and lobulated mass with a low signal intensity both in T1- and T2-weighted images. Histological findings of the tumor were identical to those of fibroma of the tendon sheath. In the peripheral villous synovial tissue, several small and fibrous nodules were observed, and their histological features were identical to those of the main tumor. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells showed diffuse and intense reactivity to vimentin, muscle actin and S-100. These results indicated that the tumor might be a fibromatous analog of synovial chondromatosis.
