Ganglia are the most common soft tissue tumors of the hand. Ganglia usually arise from the scapholunate ligament dorsally and between flexor carpi radialis and abductor pollicis longus tendon on volar side. Intratendinous ganglia are very rare lesion of unknown etiology and pathogenesis. We report a patient with intratendinous ganglion in the extensor tendon of a finger and present MRI findings showing a pathologic fluid connetion between intratendinous gemgion and it’s inflamned synovial sheath. This may explain a possible pathogenesis of this lesion.
