PMID:  12666294     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors present two cases of hyperplasia of Pacinian corpuscles, one in the hand and another in the foot. In the hand the corpuscles were located along the radial border of the pulp of the little finger and presented with localised sharp pain. In the foot, it presented as metatarsalgia in association with Morton's neuroma of the second web space. Both patients underwent exploration and excision of the lesion with complete resolution of symptoms.
