Answer

Other problems to consider in patients who may have FT include the following:

  • Ganglion involving the tendon sheath
  • Infection within the tendon sheaths
  • Ganglion cyst of the wrist
  • Acromegaly - Increased growth hormone stimulates sodium reabsorption in the distal nephron, increasing extracellular volume and leading to swelling of the flexor synovium within the digital sheath [32]
