Hand’s aneurysmal bone cyst: A rare localization. Case report and systematic literature review
Aneurysmal bone cysts are benign, rare bony tumours frequently observed among children and young adults principally located in the long bones, pelvis, and spine and rarely in other anatomical district such as the hand. We report the case of a 12-year-old girl with an aneurysmal bone cyst, in active stage, involving the still-open epiphysis of the fourth metacarpal of the right hand, which was in a first time treated by curettage, and 3 months later, occurring a recurrence, by a radically excision of the bone and reconstruction with a graft from the iliac crest. At 10-year follow-up the patient had good cosmetic results and a functioning hand. We also performed a systematic Literature review in order to retrieve the key information regarding: the diagnosis, the clinical features and the treatment.
