Fibro-osseous pseudotumour is a rare diagnosis for an acutely swollen finger with excruciating pain. Incomplete excision of the lesion could lead to rapid recurrence and may mimic infection or malignancy. Prompt recognition of the benign nature of this condition is important to avoid amputation on a major digit. We report the cases of two patients who presented with finger pain because of recurrence after lesions in the fingers after initial lesion excision.

手指骨化纖維假腫瘤: 兩例復發報告

麥勤興、麥江寧

骨化纖維假腫瘤是一極為罕見,能引致手指急性腫脹及劇痛的手指軟組織病理變化。手術若未能完全切除病變組織,會導致迅速復發,容易與術後感染或惡性腫瘤病變混淆。能及早確定其為良性的軟組織病變十分重要,以避免錯誤診斷為惡性腫瘤而進行切除。本文報告兩例手指骨化纖維假腫瘤,於手術切除後轉復發的臨床經驗。
