Viva 2 asks what is the likely diagnosis of the cystic, soft-tissue lump shown in the photograph, from what structure does it commonly arise, what clinical test, outpatient procedure, and simple imaging investigation can be performed to confirm the diagnosis, and the histological definition of this condition. It also asks what the other sites are for these cystic swellings in the wrist and hand, how would this condition be managed in a 26-year-old woman who works as a secretary and presents to you for the first time, and what is the risk of recurrence post-excision?
