fibro osseous pseudotumour of digits

fibro osseous pseudotumour of digits

A rare reactive lesion affecting the digits of younger patients (average age of 40), which develops rapidly (2 to 6 weeks) and is more common in those who engaged in repetitive manual labour; it is characterised by fibroblastic proliferation and osseous metaplasia. Fibro-osseous pseudotumour mimics malignancy due to its aggressive growth and thus may be over-treated surgically.
