Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The distribution of fibrous flexor sheath ganglions was studied in 57 patients. They were found to be more common in the third decade and in the middle finger. Both hands were equally affected. There was no clear relationship to occupation or repeated trauma. The striking finding in our study was the male predominance.
