Abstract

We present the case of a 36-year-old woman with pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) of the right hand. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed that the lesion had spread over an unusually wide area. Despite this, after one single operation, there has been no relapse after 5 years, with both the functional and cosmetic results remaining satisfactory.
