A 35-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a 14-month history of relapsing painful fingertip swelling of the left middle finger observed after a minor trauma. Conventional radiographs (Fig. 1) were performed at presentation. After failure of conservative treatment, the patient underwent initial surgery without success. Follow-up MRI (Fig. 2) and CT (Fig. 3) were obtained at our institution 6 months after the first surgical procedure (Figs. 1a–b, 2a–d, 3 and 4).
