The authors report the case of a multilocular tumour of the soft tissues of the hand and wrist which was removed by excision biopsy and which proved to be a chondroma arising from the soft tissues. Soft tissue chondromas consist of islands of heterotopic cartilaginous tissue and can equally affect the viscera as well as the limbs. The hypothesis that(More)
Osteoid osteoma is a small tumour, always benign, consisting of a small focus of osteoblastic hyperactivity surrounded by a zone of sclerosis. Located preferentially on the long bones, femur and tibia, carpal localisation is rare but if present it usually affects the scaphoid. We present a case of double localization of an osteoid osteoma in the lunate(More)
We present a case of tuberculous tenosynovitis of the extensor tendons of the hand. Our patient was a young doctor working in the respiratory medicine department. He was injured on the dorsal aspect of the hand with a needle used for pleural aspiration. The clinical features consisted of gradually swelling, mild pain and stiffness of the metacarpophalangeal(More)
Giant cell tumours (GCT) of bone are frequent, with variable behaviour, high risk of recurrence and an often benign histological appearance. Their location in the hand is uncommon, and there are few publications on the subject. Surgical treatment as described in the literature is very variable. We report a case of recurrent grade II GCT, arising in the(More)
Mycetoma is a rare disease in Morocco. The purpose of this work is to increase the awareness of this infection that is still not diagnosed in our context by Moroccan practitioners, as well as to show the medical treatment limits in Madura foot disease. This is a retrospective study of 15 patients with an average age of 34 years. All patients presented(More)
We report the case of a 72-year-old woman who developed osteoarticular tuberculosis after dynamic hip screw osteosynthesis for a pertrocanteric fracture. Necrosis of the head and disassembly of the prosthetic material ensued. This patient had no history of pulmonary or extra-pulmonary tuberculosis. Certain diagnosis was established on the basis of pathology(More)
Volar perilunar dislocation of the carpus is rare. We report three cases here. The patients were 18, 23 and 31 years of age. The etiology was a traffic accident in all cases and palmar hyperflexion of the wrist was noted in all three. Palmar dislocation was associated with a scaphoid fracture in two cases. In the third case, there was an associated fracture(More)
Giant cell tumors of tendon sheath (GCTTS) represent a localised form of pigmented villonodular synovitis. They are usually found in the hand (80% of cases) where it represents the second most common tumor of the soft parts after the ganglion cyst. Its surgical treatment is sometimes difficult because of local extension and the invasion of vital digital(More)
