Giant cell tumor of soft tissue of hand: simple but rare diagnosis, which is often missed
AbstractGiant cell tumor of soft tissue originally described in 1972 in two different series by Salm and Sissons is a rare entity, which is clinically and histopathologically indistinguishable from giant cell tumor of bone. Usually involve thigh, trunk, and lower extremities but rarely involve the hands. GCT-ST is a benign tumor, which can transform into malignant form and also has potential for recurrence and metastasis. We present an otherwise healthy, middle age female who originally presented with swellings on her left finger was diagnosed with giant cell tumor of soft tissue hand.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
