Many terms are used to indicate similar or related conditions. The commonest one is ganglion which is a true cyst whereas digital mucous cyst is the ganglion variant familiar to dermatologists which presents as a cystic structure almost always at the proximal border of a finger or toe nail. The digital mucous cyst is a pseudocyst, as the mucinous joint fluid is surrounded by granulomatous response, not a cyst wall. Other related terms are mucinous cyst, mucoid cyst, mucous cyst, synovial cyst, myxoid cyst and myxomatous cyst.
