Summary

Localised nodular synovitis is a benign tumour which originates from the synovia. The circumscribed nodules are characterised by multinucleated giant cells associated with the proliferation of histiocytes. There is a histiogenetic relationship to the diffuse, heavily pigmented, villo-nodular form. The treatment consists in excising the complete nodule.
