Digital Mucoid Cysts

Mucoid cysts are associated with irregular, satellite-shaped fibroblasts that are dispersed in a Myxomatous stroma surrounded by the normal dermal tissue

There are two variations:
1. Occurs over the joint capsule

2. Proximal to the nail folding

Scar Tissue

Scars are an inevitable result of injury/trauma or surgery, and are never entirely predictable. Normal scars are typically thin, soft and pliable, of a normal skin colour, and are asymptomatic. Some surgical procedures will result in healing with a pathological scar formation.
